What materials did you use? My niece's birthday is coming up so I designed an outfit for her including this shrug and a tank dress to wear underneath (fabrics for dress shown with shrug in progress). The yarn is a cotton yarn in cream with flecks of pastel pinks and purples. I got it at Walmart of all places. I think it is meant to be used to knit dishcloths, etc but it feels really soft so I decided to use it for this shrug.

I am using the same pattern (3/4 sleeve cardigan) from the my first sweater class. I have found it really easy to adjust (making very short sleeves, a cropped length, and narrower front panels...I don't want them to close; I want them to be narrow). I am knitting the XS for my niece who wears a girls 12.

Great combo. Do you happen to have any photos of the finished outfit?
