Fisherman Shrug - what the heck happened?
I did the Fisherman Shrug from Lion Brand's pattern.

I did the pattern for the 1x - I wear an XL in regular clothing & thought this would give me plenty of room to wear over a shirt - in the end- its beautiful - but oh my goodness - it is like an EXTRA SMALL!!! My gauge worked out & everything looks right - but it is so tiny! Even the sleeves are so tight on my arms - it fits like spandex or something on my skin - Its so small - it fits my youngest step daughter who is a size 2.

Anyone else do this project & it actually work? I'm very disheartened now!
