I absolutely forget where I found this, but I think it's really cute. I don't think I'm good enough at knitting to do the cables, though. I wonder, though, does anybody think they know how the back would (or could) look like?

I imagine it could look something like this elann pattern, but with cables instead of ribbing: http://www.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=193024

The ribbing goes the wrong way.  What I suspect is that it's one long cable rectangle, with the two short ends sewn together, then folded in half to make a big oval, and the two long insides of the oval sewn together with armholes left at each end.  I've also seen similar garments that were a long cabled rectangle with the two short ends brought back flush with the middle of the rectangle, so you get something that looks like a B.  Then the T shape where the two short ends meet each other and the middle bit are sewn together and a collar is added.

diagram please:)  I'm having a really hard time picturing this in my head. . . . .This method seems to create seaming in the front by the arms, with the bulk of the shrug in the bag.  Confused!

Super cute shrug!
