so....i've gotten to the part where they tell me to
"Repeat these 3 rounds, AT THE SAME TIME when edge measures 5, 10 and 15 cm / 2", 4" and 6'' (adjust to a row of sc) inc 34-34-34-36 sc evenly on round see INCREASING TIP = 306-322-338-356 sc. "

what i'm confused about is WHERE i'm supposed to increase. am i just supposed to do some math and spread the increases around the entire round?
thanks!  Smiley

What I did is that I do the INC row when it is 2", yes, you need to do your own math to figure how to inc 34 sc (I did size small) evenly.  I have 204 st on this point, so 204 divided by 34, is 6, so I add 1st every 6st.  Then u will do the same thing when it reaches 4" and 6" again.

does it make sense?

I think it is really easy pattern for beginner, the whole shrug is one big piece, you don't need to sew the seam like most garment.  If you go back to look at my progress pics, you will get a better idea.  It took me 10 days, but I have a newborn baby, so I don't have much time to crochet.  The other lady finished it in couple days.  I think you should try!  I used to be very timid about crochet garment, but one day, I told myself that I had to step up, if not, I would never crochet garment, I am glad that I did, coz it is so much fun to crochet garment.

Personally if I did this again I would skip the dc,skip,ch2 repeat and just dc the whole back (it only calls for one row and then you work to take out the give). It doesn't effect the fit much and I find it unnessesary. When it talks about increasing at 2", I measure at my first row of sc after dc,skip,ch(this is on edging) , then I increase at the second row of sc only. If you use the correct gauge there are more stitches so it does take longer, but it looks better and you don't have to decide how many stitches to reduce with each step. I think I have more ch in armholes than the original. although, I do like the way it looks on her shoulders. Namethatcandy can probably explain the chart better than me. It took me a little while to determine where things started and stopped.

Overall it is a simple pattern and you should give it a try.

I'm so excited! I've seen that pattern before but for some reason I thought you had to buy it. Now that I know it's free I'm definitely going to make it. I've got 4 or 5 WIPs right now and I'm determined to finish at least two (Galena by Doris Chan, Wrap Re-Make from Crochet Today) before I start another. Those both turned out awesome! I'll probably use Naturally Caron Spa just because I've worked with it many times before and have loved the results.

I have question about the edge piece.

After make 2 x 56 ch each side, the pattern said "Now crochet 1 dc in each dc from back piece and in each ch chain crochet 42-44-46-48 dc = 204-220-236-248 dc in total."

But there is 56 ch, where is 42 coming fr?Huh  (I am making Size S/M)

Thanks!



Hi, I just started this pattern recently and I've read through the posts but I still don't understand this part of the pattern too. Why are there 56 ch but only 42 DC even though it says to crochet 1 dc in each ch? Can someone help?

Thanks! Smiley

Hi superkitty,

That is what I did "1 dc in each of the next 3 ch, skip 1 ch", then I got 42 dc.  I am not sure whether it is correct or not, but it works!
