The story: I found a bunch of this yarn in my closet, and I was so excited that I just needed to start something right away. I just picked up some needles and started winging it, eventually it turned into a shrug.

New pictures added (pattern at bottom of post)

The shrug front:

Closeup of the detail:


And just for fun, I've also started counting how many stitches I knit, this piece is the first one I started counting on, and it was just above 27,000 stitches.


The pattern is incredibly simple, it's knit on straights in one big rectangle, and the sleeves are seamed.

Stitch Pattern:

Multiple of 15 sts.
Row 1: k2, p1, *yo, p3tog, yo, p1, k1, p1* yo, p3tog, yo, p1, k2
Row 2: k1, p1, k1, *p3, k1, p1, k1*
Row 3: k2, p1, *k3, p1, k1, p1* k3, p1, k2
Row 4: repeat row 2
Repeat rows 1-4 until piece measures 58 inches, bind off.

It's a very prety shrug, elextra, and I can totally relate to being spell bound by the yarn...I had a similar compulsion on more than one occasion...includin g my attempt to (finally) crochet a rectangle with straight edges..it eventually becam a purse, and is now the one I carry most frequently.

Hope you, or someone you love, enjoys wearing all 27,000 stitches!

Oh WOW is this pretty! The yarn is a great choice. Is there any sort of general pattern you went by? Any sort of hint would be nice. It looks like loads of mini-cables, super-intricate.

Thanks everyone! I totally didn't even see that people responded to this, or remember posting it. ahaha.

PixieSkull: It's actually a lace pattern. I'm selling it, but I'll write up the pattern and post it later tonight or tomorrow.
