Black cable shrug
I have posted this shrug before but this one is knitted using black yarn. I really like it in black! Just in case you are confused what colour you should knit a shrug in, black is a good choice! =)

wOw. that's gorgeous! (i just realized that i use that word a lot in this forum, but it's always well deserved! )
is that one of the free patterns from IK's site? it looks like the one i really want to do. come to think of it, the neckline looks different, but i think i actually like this one better! black was definitely the perfect color choice. you did a great job!!!

The pattern is actually from Fitted Knits, ribbed shrug. But I modified the sleeves. I made it into long cabled sleeves instead of plain elbow length sleeves. =)

Very chic! You made some awesome choices with the yarn, pattern, and sleeve alteration!
