Need CHUNKY shrug or cardi pattern
A coworker gave me some LionBrand WoolEase Thick n Quick. I am imagining a shrug or cardi to keep at work in case I get chilly.

Ive already Googled and seached knittingpatterncentral.com

Any ideas? Im thinkin something SIMPLE. A little bit of a pattern would be fine, though.

Here's a shrug with the same gauge as T&Q, and it looks really easy. But there's no picture. :(

Thanks, Silver! That one is VERY simple....

Im also considering THIS SHRUG or the SONNET SWEATER from Knitty.

HUGE difference between those two things, I know! :rofling:

Hey Kelly, you and I are on the same page. :D I'm looking for a simple shrug too as you already noticed with my Italian turquoise yarn. Too bad there isn't a picture in the link at about.com for the simple shrug. I have to see a pic first.

I like that sonnet sweater a lot. (the one you link to) I think I may make that soon. Simple but interesting.

I did this shrug a long time ago, but the gauge is a bit off from your yarn.

Kelly, I did check that simple shrug but there's no picture which I would like to see. I guess I can imagineit sort of. I'm wondering, Silver... and you all,

how often do you wear those shrugs? It's a commitment to make it if it's like uncomfortable in the end. Now, I'm thinking a really short boxy sweater might be just as or more than useful.

Kelly,
I made Haiku, which is the toddler version of Sonnet and it turned out so cute. It was quick and easy too. With the bulky yarn you'd have a great sweater in no time at all!
