I started a pleated skirt last week. It is here about that:


Before yesterday I jumped to new project.Crazy!
It always happent to me, when current project is too easy. To knit a pleated skirt- it is very easy and even boring...I just need a black skirt...

I started a shrug from thick yarn with needles N 10.5 I was sure- it'll be complited in 3-4 days...
I picked a pattern from ''Knit'n style'' , but when I was done with back and fronts- I was a very dissapointed. The shape was terrible All parts slide down from my back and won't stay on my shoulders...
Probably my present figure shape not good for this shape of shrug...

I started my own shape of shrug and it doesn't take only 3-4 days. It'll take a little longer.
When I making my own design, of course, I do mistakes and I start, and start, and start, all over again.

With this shrug I got luck after 3 times of beginning... Because the sleeve's shape are difficult(it is a circular knitting with lot of increasing) I have to change number of stitches in repeate from 9 to 11, and then (when I decreasing on cuffs) I have to change it from 11 to 9 again. Every stitch must be counted...

I hope my desighn will work for me.
