Does anyone know where I can get a pattern that is similar to the Abercrombie shrug?  Look below please. Any ideas? Thank you!  Smiley

Hi Connie, you need to read this:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23595.0

This posting has a shrug just like yours, and we are all trying to get the pattern translated from Norwegian right now. Here is the site: http://heleneh.sprayblogg.no/ It is the gray shrug halfway down the page.

Lothruin made one w/o a pattern just by looking at the picture, and I think she is writing a pattern for it.

So either way, we should have some info on how to make it soon.  Cheesy

Good luck!

I can't really see the the pattern in that pic very well, connie, but it looks like the body of the shrug is made with some sort of modified all-over cable.  Looks a little complicated, but probably wouldn't be too bad.  The shrug I made has raglan shaping while that one has regular shoulders, and I'm not really familiar with that type of sleeve and shoulder shaping yet, but here's my idea:

Work up a swatch in the right pattern.  Maybe something like this:
http://knitting.about.com/library/blwavelattice.htm

Then you can modify a cardigan to fit.  The collar is worked just like the perfect shrug one.  You'll pick up stitches all the way around the entire back and front and work in ribbing for a little bit, then start shaping the collar.

Try yesterknits.com or whiteliesdesigns.com.  I think I saw a shrug like that on one of those 2 sites.

The shape of this bolero jacket is almost perfect:
http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/trio_bolero.html

Like I said above, swatch that wave lattice pattern and figure out how to make your swatch fit with the shape of the bolero pattern.  (I think that bolero is done in a slightly chunky yarn and you'll probably want to use something worsted weight or even sport to get the right effect, but the math shouldn't be too tough.)

Anyway, with the exception of lengthening the sleeves somewhat and adding ribbing to the cuff, then doing the collar, you should be able to do it almost identically to that bolero.  And as I said above, the collar shouldn't be too tough.  You'll pick up stitches all around the edge of the bolero (down the front lapel, around back, up the other side and along the neck) then knit in the round for a couple inches in ribbing.  Then for the wide collar part, you'll cast off the corner and back stitches, leaving live stitches from about 1/3 up the lapel from the bottom.  Then, knit back and forth on these stitches, binding off one stitch on either end every row or every other row.

Voila.

I think the pattern to which puppymomma is referring is http://www.whiteliesdesigns.com/patterns/lcardigans/502.html.  It's a similar shape but much lacier.

Thank you EVERYBODY! You guys have been a GREAT help. All the patterns look SO similar! The angelina one is almost identical. If i WAS to do the angelina, what can I do to crop it? I also came across http://whiteliesdesigns.com/patterns/lcardigans/136.html That TOO has the same sorta look just elongated.  *sigh*
