NEED HELP PLEASE with Circular Shrug
Hello all!

I just began the Circular Shrug that so many have knitted over on Ravelry. Here's the link for the shrug...

http://peonyknits.blogspot.com/2005/...ay-for-fo.html

Iím a tad confused and need your help please. Iím knitting the shrug on #6 circular needles (first time using circulars) and the entire piece is connected.

Upon seeing several photos of various shrugs before completion on Ravelry, it doesnít appear that Iím doing this properly. Plus, people have discussed sewing up the seams. If itís done in the round there wouldnít be any seams, right?

Am I doing it correctly or should the rows have ďendsĒ rather than a continuous circle? If there should be actual row ends then do I need to use circulars or can I just use straight needles.

I really love this shrug and would like to make it properly.

Thanks in advance for any and Happy St. Paddy's Day to all!


Hugs,

O'Deborah <-------Today everybody's Irish

It's knit on circulars because of the number of stitches it holds. If you look at the photos further down the page, it shows progress shots and how it's seamed together.
