My mother would LOVE this, she wears these tie front shrugs ALL the time over tanks b/c she doesn't like her upper arms showing. I know if I made her one she'd wear it (though unfortunately, she'd probably only like it in boring black)...but anyway, it's probably easy enough or there is likely a similar pattern online somewhere (free please)...but I can't find it if so.

HELP! Thanks so much, in advance.

(and while I'm at it...how about this? possible to make or find a similar pattern?):

What magazine/book/site did you get the pics from?  Those are beautiful garments, and i would LOVE to make those, it's just i really suck at clothes,  but my sister has a bunch of books and stuff that i can look through!

I have 2 I have done, both free.  They aren't tie front, but they could easily be adapted, and the patterns are easy to customize.  They are Coats & Clark, the ruffle shrug and the ripple shrug.

OH COOL, thank you! I really like the ruffle shrug but alas, it's something for my mother who would only wear a tie front.

I actually just got them off of doing a Google Image search, so I have NO idea what web site for either unfortunately. Bad on my part, sorry.

It is easy to add a tie front, I did to the ruffle shrug and it was really cute.

I would think the pattern for the second, long-sleeve one would be pretty easy to gank...start with your standard shrug-- i.e., begin with the back; work down; add fronts and shoulders; add sleeves; then, do the bottom, swingier section separately and attach.  Stitchwise, I think the whole top section looks like dc shells over and over and the bottom looks like 2 tc shell patterns in each stitch.

The second sweater is from a pattern booklet by Nashua, IIRC.

This looks pretty close to the first picture you posted.
