[Anthropologie-inspired Capelet] Inspired Shrug
Ok, so here's what I made out of the Mmmmmmmalabrigo Angelia sent me.





It's kind of hard to see all the colors unless you're up close to it. And I ran out of yarn. I was going to make seed stitch cuffs and have a few more inches of ribbing at the bottom.
Oh well. I'll see about getting another hank later.
I don't really need a whole hank though. So, I dunno. I don't have any colors that would match to just add on.

I put buttons on the front of this one. I like how it looks with the top two buttoned.

I can't wait to wear it to work. All that loverly yarn... Now I see why everyone here just calls it Mmmmmm.

179 - Black Forest.

I got 2 skeins as a gift, and used up both of them completely.

That's beautiful. And in such wonderful yarn. It looks great on, especially with the two cute little buttons. Good idea.

2 skeins you say, huh? :thinking:

So, did you just make a worsted weight anthro capelet and then keep going on the sleeves?

Yep. One skein took care of the body. The second was used up on the sleeves.

I cast on 67 sts (plus two for selvege edges) for a measurement of 15.5 inches. Worked out perfectly.

Cute! I was thinking of using that pattern to make something long-sleeved too, kind of like this. Unfortunately, my yarn won't be quite as nice.
