Hi hi. Well, we got into shrug patterns over in the topic under
Socks in General Knitting and now I'm hot to trot with making my first shrug.
I've looked and looked at the Interweave shrugs. [size=2]
I like the pink ribbed one that Sara is making but I want one that is WIDER at the back. (vertically I mean) That one is only 6 inches and I need more warmth than 6 inches. I know I want elbow length sleeves.
I don't want it to fit too tight. :shock: I want it to be a bit interesting. Comfy. And simple enough for me to make.
I'm wondering, I know if you just do the rectangle and then fold it and sew the sleeves up... doesn't that feel a bit like a straightjacket? Has anyone made one and feels it's comfortable? That does look the easiest but I'm not sure if it will be wide enough to cover some of my back.
I'm also considering these two (one which Amy has posted)
Has anyone made these?
(That one is gorgeous. But is it too difficult?)
Then there's this one which might be what I want. But is it ugly?
It does look comfy.
