Per the pattern, I have completed the lacy baby shrug from the July 2006 Creative Knitting Magazine. :happydance: However, I would like to add a crochet edge to the bottom back to compensate for the tugging in of the 3-needle BO seam that runs down the center.
The shrug is too big totally due to the fact that I ignored the pattern gauge… The pattern says “baby weight cotton blend yarn” and uses US 3 needles. So I assumed :doh: that meant a light sport/heavy fingering weight yarn and therefore bought Shine Sport from Knit Picks. However, the pattern gauge reads 10 spi. Looking back, it makes sense that a lighter weight yarn should’ve been used because there’s a lot of 1x1 rib. I made the 18 months size, but it turned out to fit a two- to possibly four-year-old.
At first, I thought that I might give this shrug to an older child. But, now I’m not so sure because it took forever to make the ruffle, and it looks too darn cute on Marie!
