Shrug

So other than hats and mittens, this is the first piece of clothing I've ever made. Ok, there have been leg warmers, too. But that stuff doesn't count. I'm obsessed with shrugs - I guess because I'm obsessed with layering - and I've bookmarked about 85 different ones to make. This one is a super easy design by Peony Knits. You can find the pattern here.


I used Wool-Ease Chunky and a larger needle size. I did check the gauge (and proud of it, even though I FAILED) but the finished product came out smaller anyways. It fits me, but just barely and it would really work better for an adolescent girl. Ah, well. It took less than a skein to make so I can always try again.
