That's a great shrug! Good on you for making up your own pattern, it worked beautifully. Perhaps you'll have to keep making more and more, in bigger and bigger sizes as your daughter grows up!

Just had an idea: Instead of knitting horizontally (parallel to the collar) I could knit to frame the face of the hood? Totally ignore the raglan and make a seam where the hood joins.
