Hi!! This is a little lycra shug I made to make my cowl top appropriate for some more chilly days! It is as easy to sew as the top. The pattern is a simple rectangle, I have seen many shrugs like this in rtw stores. There are many tutorials on the web, one of them is this http://somethingtocraftabout.com/?p=555
I made 6 pleats at the bottom of the sleeves and added wide doubled bands, I think this way the shug looks a little more well finished. I have made loads of these shrugs and i have them always in my purse whenever the temprature is a little bit more low.

A perfect match for the top!
I love the wide double bands you added. A perfect finishing touch.

PS: you look great in those pictures where you smile! (I remember you always looking so serious in your first modeling pictures.) Happy time!
