I want to make the 2 tone shrug from Fitted KNits
for my little sister for Christmas. The trouble is I have 2 skeins of Caron Shadows - 300 yds - and the shrug requires 440 yds. (2 skeins of cascade 220) If I knit it with a slightly larger gauge (18 sts/4" instead of 20 sts/4") do you think I could get away with the yarn I have or should I get another ball to be safe? Thanks!
Oh and I think I will need to make the next smallest size - somehow I have to measure her back width without her noticing.
