I knit up a very classic shrug. It's  two sleeves connected by strip across the back.  I wrote a little program that let's you enter your own yarn gauge, so anyone can re-create the pattern in their own yarn.  You can find it here: http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/329

Oh, since some people might want to use cotton, and cotton often shrinks, I wrote the program to let you account for shrinkage.

Thanks for the compliment!  I think it's a really easy beginner project.

I like the it,   you wouldn't happen to have a picture of the back would you?

I need to make this to go with a dress I have.

We tried taking pictures in the front yard first. There are lots of shadows, but you can see how it looks.  It's just straight across.

Oh,  I love it.

Thank you very much for the picture.  I like how it goes down farther.  I don't really care for the ones that are short in the back.


Great job!

I know what you mean. I looked at a bunch of shrugs and their schematics. Some decrease stitches for the width of the back, and make it short. I think those often look like just a strap across the back, which wasn't what I wanted. 

Others patterns  increased stitches and others kept the number constant.  I increased a few to make the back about 2" wider than it would be if you didn't increase.  Keeps your back warmer!
