FO - Cropped Cardi/Shrug for me!
Finally! I finished this last night and tied the ribbon this morning...but I started it last year!
More details on this knit on my blog

Some quick stats:
*Berroco Cotton Twist in Color 8387 (it should be called Berroco Cotton Splits!)
*85 yds/ball; I used about 8 balls for the Medium size (Back 19", Length 16")
*Needles - 24" US 5 circular, 24" US 6 circular, and US 6 dpns

Thanks for looking!

This pattern was written up by one of the women at My local yarn store.

She told me long ago that I could share it, as long as you don't sell the finished product

If anyone would like a .pdf copy, PM me with your email address.

That cardi/shrug is nice. I love the slightly flared cuff.
