okay, i recently saw a shrug all over the internets, but of course i didn't bookmark it anywhere.  it was a square or rectangle for the back, i think, and then there was a cabled edging all around it.  sort of like the circular shrug, only not.  and people picked it apart (definitely on flickr, probably on craftster) and said things like "yes, it's definitely just a scarf attached to a rectangle and the scarf gets skinnier at the top and wider at the bottom.  see the seam at the back neck?"  and i think it was a designer piece?

i've spent the past hour googling and searching this board with every combination of terms i could think of.  hopefully someone knows what i'm talking about!

ETA: i found it!  on tragicherione's flickr stream.  not really sure how that happened, but it did.  i'm off to knit!

i found some more views!

the back is a cabled rectangle with some shaping for the armholes.  maybe 8-10" long?  then you knit a scarf.  i haven't figured out how long it should be, yet, but it looks like it starts half as wide as the back (4-5") and gradually increases to as wide as the back halfway through, and then decreases back down.  and then you seam it into a circle and seam it to the top and the bottom of the rectangle.  i'm pretty sure you don't have to do anything funny to the scarf to make it lay right (other than the increasing and decreasing), but i might make a mock-up out of fabric before i start knitting, just to make sure.
