I used Patons Classic Wool in Leaf Green.

Here is how i did it:

My gauge was smaller than the pattern was written for.
 5 stitches = 1"  and 6 rows = 1"  So when I cast on I added 8 stitches.
I then knit as the pattern directed until it was the size I wanted.  Of course I ended up with more stitches on my needle the the pattern said i would have at my size. I had 54 stitches on each sleeve piece and didn't count what I had for the back piece.
-place 54 sleeve stitches on circular needle and place marker
-knit row and at same time increase 1 stitch before and after marker=56 sts
-join work and knit 3 more rows
-knit row and increase 1 stitch before and after marker-58 sts
-row 28 decrease 1 stitch before and after marker-56 sts
continue decreases on theses rows:
row 34=54 sts
row 40=52 sts
row 46=50 sts
row 52=48 sts
row 58=46 sts
row 64=44 sts
row 70=42 sts
row 76=40 sts
-continue working on 40 stitches for rows 77-120
-rib in knit1 purl 1 for next 10 rows
-row 131 cast off

I have never written pattern instructions before so if anything is unclear- just ask!

That looks great and I'm not a real fan of shrugs.  Did you still use only one skein Grin

I haven't made the OSW as I didn't like the mini sleeves! You have solved that problem, could you solve it for me too? give me a hint, just one!

Nice work!  I liked knitting the one skein wonder with short sleeves, but this looks so great that I might have to go shrug-aholic and knit yet another one with long sleeves!
Pretty please can we have your pattern mods??

spelf-  The top I made without a store bought pattern.  I made a pattern by tracing a similar lace shirt that I really liked. 
As for the long sleeves- instead of working seed stitch I just continued knitting away (but on small circular needles) working decreases gradually down the sleeve.  I did make notes as I did it ( so my sleeves would match!) and if anyone is interested I can post them. Oh yeah, I used 2 1/4 skeins of yarn!

personally, if I am going to be putting on another layer, I think it seems a little odd for it not of have some substantial sleevage.  but, then, I also am pretty self-concious about my squishy upper-arm area.

anyway, bottom line, great job on your 2.25 Skein Wonder.  I, for one, would love the details of how you worked out the decreases.

I love it.  Most of the long-sleeved shrugs out there are too elaborate for my taste, but this is a fabulous basic.  I'd be tempted to modify my OSW if I thought I had enough yarn for sleeves... You don't happen to know how many grams or ounces of yarn you used, do you?  I think I have like 1.5 oz. left over from mine - could be enough for 3/4 sleeves...

I am working on the OSW right now and love your modifications.  I was thinking of working the sleeves just a bit longer but was too chicken.  Thanks for inspiring me to go for it!

I finished mine for the Ongoing Stuff I can Make round 2 swap.  About a day later, I received another request for one! 
I did not use the smaller circular needles for the sleeves, though.  I chose dbl ptd needles.
This was made with Cascade 220 yarn.

Wow!! This really cute! I'm not a big fan of shrugs...they seem too dressy to me and I never really um...dress up? lol

But this looks really casual. I can just tote it around for those chilly spring nights. Might have to try it.

I love this modified osw! I attempted to make longer sleeves on mine but somehow failed miserably. I guess I just wasn't paying attention to what I was doing. It happens!  Roll Eyes I look forward to using your instructions to get it right!

Could you post the entire pattern...I've tried to make there and the armpit area where it goes from round to flat never looks that good? How did you make yours?
