A few years ago I knitted a shrug, but had difficulty making it up as the instructions in the pattern were rather vague. I put the project to one side in favour of others I was working on, but recently decided to have another go. I’m still not sure how to get it looking like the one in the diagram, but have got one sleeve sewn in and seamed, one side seamed and the other sleeve partly sewn in. The result of that is a piece of fabric folded over lengthwise, ie cast on edge to cast off edge, with a sleeve at each end of the fold. The trick seems to be to manipulate the article into a shrug that can be worn.
Any ideas, anyone? I’ll be having another go once I’ve finished the sewing up part.
