I saw a picture of a shrug in "Get Hooked Again" but since that was the only pattern I would use I didn't buy it. Instead I got online, found the picture, and made my own version. my little brother took these pictures which pretty much explains why it looks so unflattering. I swear it looks much better in person lol.

Thank you all for the comments!  Smiley

omgosh, will you post the pattern?

Because I was trying to imitate a real pattern that someone else made I don't think it would be right to write a pattern and post it as my own. Sorry  Undecided
However if someone just wants the stitch type I used I'll be happy to share that. It's a DC mesh and HDC ribbing. Sorry I don't feel right doing more.

BUT

I am planning on making another shrug using a different mesh-like stitch and that one will be of my own design! So keep checking and hopefully I'll post that one soon!
