This pattern was a bit confusing (had to ask for help from the author several times), but I pushed through and finished I love wearing little shrugs and the like, and this should be great for the cool summer nights! I used Knit Picks Merino Style in Petal. This is a fab yarn. It holds up really well to frogging! I had to frog half a ball's worth FOUR times before I got that bit right, and that section looks the same as all the other sections. I think the next time I make it, I'll try a yarn more similar to the recommended one (I believe that's cotton or linen) for something I can wear summer DAYS!




You can see a couple more pictures on my Ravelry project page.

Very nice! And it looks great on you, perfect color, and it's long enough in the back.

You do come up with some of the nicest projects!
