View Full Version : sock yarn for child's shrug?

Has anyone ever used sock yarn to knit anything besides socks? I have a pattern for a child's shrug and it says you could use sock yarn. Just wondering.

I saw a pattern for an adorable baby sweater made out of the self patterning sock yarn. it made the same stripey pattern as the sock would and was just amazing. I think it was a back issue of Knitter's. (and it has a little matching hat- soooo cute!)

if you get a nicely draping fabric with the yarn of your choice- go for it!
