Bellflower Shrug
...from the last issue of Magknits before the implosion.

Classic Elite Wool Bam Boo, less than 3 skeins. It's a lovely rich blue-green color in person. I LOVE the yarn. It's soft, squishy, springy and has lovely drape. So comfy against my skin.

I love this shrug too! I'm actually gonna wear it--I plan to wear it to an event Thursday night.

I made a few pattern mods so it would be a wee bit larger than the "one size" of the pattern (must accommodate the line backer shoulders). I added one lace repeat worth of stitches to my cast on, plus a selvedge stitch on each end. I also extended the ribbing across the bottom for an extra inch or so, to hit a little below bra line.

Please excuse the pics. It was tough to take 'em by myself and I guess my lens was dirty. (Also excuse the braless-ness, it's late and I had to let the girls take a breather :teehee:).

Cute shrug! Looks like your mods made for a perfect fit.

The shrug came out great and fits you perfectly. I love the color on you.

Looks wonderful! I'm working on my first wearable, hope it comes out half as nice as yours is. Have fun wearing it.
