Hey craftsters!  I finished this shrug awhile back and never posted it!  How silly of me!

I followed the 'HUG' pattern from the first issue of Magknits.  I modified it though to knit up in stockinette instead of the rib pattern.  If I were to do it again, I would do it in the rib though, at least for the back portion so it would lay flat.  The edges curl a bit now.  But, eh, I still love it! Smiley  Now I can wear my t-shirts all year long.  Smiley


Here's the front....

Here's the back....

Great job, Trebuchet!

I have had my eye on this pattern for a few months now. Must get my butt in gear and give it a try! What kind of yarn did you use? I would probably have to go with black as well, just so it went with as many things as possible...

Looks great -- wear it with pride! I'm sure you'll get a lot of use out of it this winter.

That's really cool--I like that it's almost totally backless--it's much more unusual than the shrugs which are essentially cropped sweaters.

(P.S.  Totally dig the Homestar T-shirt.)

I love it!

What type of yarn did you use? Did you use the chunky yarn like magknits did?

Thanks for all the compliments!

No, I didn't use the yarn the pattern suggests.  If I recall correctly, it was pretty pricey.  I ended up using some Red Heart yarn I had lying around.

I'm glad you asked what size needles I used!  It reminded me that I used two strands of the Red Heart when I knitted this on 10 1/2 (7 mm) needles.

boy, that is so nice!!!

I can't knit, and the last simple scarve I attempted ended up having zigzag edges! 

I saw in a boutique the other day a knitted scarve but with a hood - so the hood goes behind the neck and the 2 ends of the wrap hangs like a scarve, with pockets at the ends for warming the hands too!  Maybe you expert knitters could try to make that!
