Shrug Question
I'm knitting a shrug in the round because I hate seaming. This is my first shrug(my cat ruined my 1st attempt) and I can't figure out how to go from knitting the sleeve in the round to knitting the body flat Could someone help me? Pretty please with baby alpaka on top?

When you get to the end of the round, instead of continuing on, turn and work back across the WS until you get to where you turned. Then turn again and work across the RS. The first few rows might be a bit difficult, but it will get easier after a bit.

Baby alpaca, you say...? Where?

Thanks Suzeeq,

Do I have to cast-off some stitches before I start the body?

The baby alpaka is at your favorite LYS.

Probably not, or it would be too short for your back.

I'm interested in this, too. Once she gets to the end of the sleeve, how is she going to go much further flat if she doesn't bind off any stitches or place some on a holder. *trying to picture . . . *

Well, try it and see!

As I said, the first few rows could be a little tight, but one thing you can do is to pinch the cord about halfway and pull it out between the stitches. That's kind of like a Magic Loop, but it could help keep the edge stitches together so the needle wouldn't pull at the sleeve so much.
