I want to use some Bernat super value yarn for this... The gauge is 18 s   24r on US 8 needles. So if i use US 13 needles,  will the gauge match the pattern. Sorry I still haven't figured out how the gauge of a yarn changes when you use different sized needles.
Thanks!!

This my finished shrug!! I'm really happy with it, but I don't like the fact that the sleeves are too short and they roll.


I used Bernat Super Saver In Peacock. It's knit in stocking net.

You can block out SOME of the rolling.  Some people would iron it "killing" the fiber, making it lie flat. 

Do you have any yarn left?  Can you pick up stitches and add a bell to the sleeve or some lace (maybe the skull lace?)

Can you block acrylic yarn? Skull lace would be awesome, but I have never done lace before. I have 2 more skeins of this yarn left. It's pretty nice for acrylic yarn.

Well, it depends on who you ask....*grin*

In my experience, you can block it.  But, if I really wanted it to stay put, I did use an iron at low temps to kill the fiber.

If you can do knit, purl, yo, slip stitches and knit two together, you can do lace.  Besides, you have the forum to ask away....should you run into trouble....=)

Here is the link for the skull lace.

hmm.. I can do all of those things. that lace is awesome! It just makes me sad to have to ripe out the seams i did.  I might just leave this one as is and make another with the skull  lace.

You don't have to rip out the stitches.  You could pick up stitches in the round at the cuffs....and do the lace....=)
