Hey all -

I just finished this little project and really enjoyed making it:

http://www.elizabethklett.com/images/regency2.jpg

I used four balls of Rowan Calmer in "coral."  More photos and pattern notes can be found on my blog (link below).  This is a free pattern, by the way - you can find it and other shrugs designed by the IK staff here - http://www.interweave.com/knit/projects_articles.asp.

Cheers,
Elizabeth

That's adorable. Is that part of the "Staff Knits" thing? I need to check that out... You did a great job!

Wow, awesome ! It actually looks more like a bolero than a shrug, does it ?  And that color makes it much more interesting than the pastelish blue used in the original pic...  Wink

Good on you for showing us all that this one could be very nice too !

that looks great gloriana, I like the color so much more than the one in the original pattern. 

This is yet another project that makes me want to try out calmer.

Thanks, y'all!  Yes, this pattern is indeed part of the "Staff Knits" section.  I definitely recommend Calmer to anyone - it's really a pleasure to knit with.  And prunille, I was thinking the same thing - that this really isn't much of a shrug because it has a front.  How does one define "shrug", anyway?  Smiley

Does this require circular needles?

No circular needles required - you knit it in two flat halves and then seam up the sleeves and graft the back pieces together.

At long last, I have completed my regency shrug. I'm overall happy with it, though it called for too much yarn and came out a little too big. More pix and details on my blog, www.everywordsapurl .blogspot.com.
