What materials did you use? This little shrug uses just one skein of yarn (about 200 yards or even less.) Mix up the look by adding a contrasting trim or lengthening the sleeves. Create a looser-fitting shrug by going up a size, or by using fatter yarn & larger needle. Create a formal or bridal look by using glittery or fuzzy yarn.

What are you most proud of? I'm very proud of how versatile this little pattern is. You can really switch it up for any occasion very easily!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to experiment! This shrug looks great worked up in just about any yarn that you've got on hand. It's so easy to modify! Make long sleeves, make a longer neckline trim, add fronts...the only limit is your imagination!

I'm almost finished with mine and I love it! Now I just need to find something to wear it with.

It's a really awesome pattern. I've made it twice and intend to make another version in black (w longer sleeves) after I finish all of my Xmas gift knitting...
