This is adorable! I live in shrugs and cropped cardies, cause I'm a shortarse and apparently they make me look taller!  Cheesy

I'm definitely going to try it, but maybe bung a few cables into the mixture, cause I just learned to go them for fetching and am well impressed with myself  Wink

I LOVE this top and your pattern is great! I have one problem though, I'm not a 34" chest. I'm more like a 32". Maybe smaller actually.  Undecided I wouldn't say I'm "lacking" in that department, it's just not my most noticeable of features. lol. Do you think this shrug would be too big on me?? I'm tall and slender too, so I'm really just worried I'll end up looking like my clothes don't fit. Is there some way the pattern can be modified to suit me or do you think it'll be fine? Thanks so much.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Just decrease your cast on by a few stitches on each piece (making sure to keep a multiple of  2 or 4 for the ribbing) and you should be fine. It's actually a bit big on ME, so you might be good to cut out 4 stitches on each piece. I tried to make the pattern so it was easily customizable (I hope!)

I also used about 750m /850yd or so for it, if that helps anyone!

I absolutely :heart: you!!! As soon as I finish the neverending cardigan I'm working on (possibly before that- I'm excited) I'll be yarn shopping for this. Thanks so much for the pattern and the information on making the pattern smaller (I'm 100 lbs, 5'0", so no pattern seems to fit as-is). Again, thank you- you're my favorite person now!! Grin

I'm considering rewriting the pattern using a top-down method, and including proper sizing. It might take a while to do, but I'm interested.

What do you gals think, would it be worth it? Smiley

If the top-down version looks as good as this one, I'm all for it! You're a knitting God-send...  Wink
