K so now I'm confused. When you say I'd need to make the back longer to you mean longer up and down wise or side to side? Because if I make it longer up and down won't that also make the sleeves looser?

And how many skeins of yarn did you use? I hate running out mid-project and having to wait to finish.

And I added you to my friends on ravelry  Cheesy

OK I mean when you get to the 3 x 3 ribbing, make sure it will go across your back from armpit to armpit, maybe even make it a little bit longer than you need to and make sure you do not go to far up when you seam the arms closed. I'm plus sized as well (not surprising because I'm pretty sure we're both in the plus sized swap LOL) and with PFD's shrug her back from armpit to armpit is several inches shorter than mine and thats what would make the difference if I were going to make it to fit me. If you look at other shrug sizes they will give you a measurement for your back from armpit to armpit, and it could be 16", 18", 20", etc. And that's what makes the difference in resizing it. The ribbing makes it stretchy so the wrists and arms should be fine.
I used about 1 and 1/4th of a skein of Loops & Threads (the Michael's Brand) Santa Fe yarn. That's 264 yards per skein. I also don't think i mentioned that once I was done and seamed the arms closed, I picked up the stitches around the opening and made a 5 row border just to make it look more finished.


Oooooooohhhhh ok. That makes sense now. Yay! I can't wait to go get some yarn and try it out.

And I knew I was in another swap with you, I just couldn't remember which one  Tongue
