I made this shrug for my friend's daughter. I made the 9-12 months size even though she is 18 months.  She is small for her age.  It ended up a little big for her. But it is August and about 95+ degrees everyday so hopefully by the time it gets cold she'll have grown into it more.

I used Vanna's Choice which felt softer in the store then when I knitted it up. I'm hoping that it will get softer with washing. The pattern called for Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran but I wanted a machine washable less expensive yarn.

It wasn't a difficult knit. It is knit all in one piece so there was only a little bit of seaming.

I think if I was to knit it again I'd use a sport weight yarn instead and adjust the pattern. It ended up a little to thick then needed for a baby in Texas.

Pattern: Baby Shrug from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Vanna's Choice in Rose (#142), 2 1/2 Balls
Gauge: 18sts/4 inches
Needles: Size 7

I tried to leave a msg on your blog but I don't have blogger.  Anyways, I think it looks fantastic!  I just finished a project with Vanna's Choice and I thought it was still nice after being knit.  Better than most acrylics at any rate.  Also, my almost born baby is named Evie, it's nice to see there are other Evies out there!  Is it short for anything?  Her full name is Evangeline.

How cute!  I was wondering about that yarn, and I'll probably wait to get it.  Thanks for the honest opinion! Smiley
