I fell in love with this shrug posted by spirals420 and I used her tutorial as a guideline/inspiration.

You'll notice that there aren't any horns, I tried to make them and they looked bad, I think I'll get some more knitting practice in before trying to add them again.

I really like how the back looks with the red Y shape.  This is my first finished knitted item(not counting washcloths and scarves) and I think it turned out pretty well since it taught myself to knit using the stitch and bitch book and Knittinghelp.com videos.
I used size 8 needles and Caron simply soft yarn.
Comments alway welcome and thanks for looking Cheesy.

Your instructions were great(thanks for sharing them), I just used a totally different type of yarn and it took a lot more stitches(I also have big arms) and I had a couple of mishaps along the way, but I finally made it through.  I think that if I made another one it would go much faster.  I hoping to be able to add the horns eventually Grin.
