I'm done with my olive color shrug!
Hello
I' m done with my shrug tonight! Unfortenaly, I don't have blog yet, so... I'll tell here How i made it.

The olive shug is my de-e-ep modifity of this shrug(from ''Creative knitting'')

http://rc.foto.radikal.ru/0707/fc/c96d57b2cd10.jpg

I was very impressed with shape of this shrug.I also like idea about blended thick yarn and thick needles.
But i didn't like idea about ribed colar and i don't like stocknette.

First of all, i always think about color. i wanted some SPECIAL UNUSUAL color for my future shrug. My mind was stuck beetween dark fucsia, olive green and deep peach... i go throuh all yarn what i have in my house and i decided- it'll be olive green.
It's how I made olive color:i blended together 4 types of different yarn(from 4 old sweaters) and I recieved exactly OLIVE .Blended yarn includes 30% wool + 70 % mersernized cotton.

Then I started to create my own shape: I changed sleeve shape a little bit, changed fronts shape a little bit,and I used back shape how it was in magazine.(The prosess of knitting I showed in ''Current projects'')
Then I picked an other type of colar, put cuffs on that, of course, i used a different stitch patters for my shrug.

NOW IT'S READY!!!

And, of course, it looks even better on me(ha-ha!)

That pattern would make a great fall coat. Just knit a longer body and don't do the shaping in the middle.

I am not a fan of shrugs myself, but it looks great.
