View Full Version : Hug Shrug

I finished this shrug a couple of weeks ago, and love it!, but I find that it wants to slip off my shoulders. Any ideas on what I can use to keep that from happening? I'm in the process of making another one in black for a friend.

Did you increase your needle size as you got to the middle, then decrease again as you got back to the cuff?
that gives you a bit of height and drape across the sholders (as far as i know anyway)

Your shrug is beautiful ! Where did you find the pattern?
I made a shrug last spring and hoping to get around to another one soon....anyway, I knit a collar and larger needles and then stitched it onto the shrug so that it covered my shoulders more and stayed in place.

I think it would help solve that problem if you undo part of the seam. Try having the seam end just about your elbow -- that should give more ease to the part over the shoulders.

There is no seam on this shrug...I found the pattern here (http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/hug.htm), with the cables mods found here (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38696.20).

Thanks for the replies! I'm going to attach an i-cord to each side of the shoulders to see if that will help with keeping it on.
