Varandra, your choice of yarn makes me reconsider giving this pattern a chance.  It looks beautiful!  Great job and perseverance!

Hi,

I'd really like to make a circular shrug but with sleeves (for the cold Scottish winter). I've never designed my own pattern before. Could anyone give me some advice on how to do the sleeves? The article on Knitty (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/FEATfall04TBP.html) talks about the different types of sleeves but I don't know which would be appropriate for the circular shrug.

Any advice welcome!

Thanks very much to all you very creative types,
Katie

You can pick up sts around the armhole after you've sewn the side seams. This would be sort of a drop shoulder sleeve, but you'd be knitting it from the shoulder as long as you want it. I would start decreases about 2-3" from the underarm (on the undarm side, where the sleeve seam would be if you were knitting it flat) and continue to decrease every couple inches.

Thanks very much. Is it a case of working out what I want the circumference to be at the cuff and then doing enough evenly spaced decreases along the length of the sleeve to get to my target? Or maybe a couple of inches before and then doing some actual ribbing?

Thanks again,
Katie

Something like that. Decide if you want ribbing, garter, or a loose cuff or whatever. Look at your arm, it doesn't usually get a lot larger until about 5-6" above your wrist, so you wouldn't need to do decreases in that area, and if you want a loose sleeve, you might not want as many decs altogther as for a more fitted sleeve. I've found that doing a dec every couple inches (that's actually 2 per round) usually works well, all the way to the wrist.

Hi guys,
I completely forgot I had an old membership here. When I googled for a circular vest and found this thread I tried my usual forum login, and lo and behold it worked.

Now I've read a few of the first pages (55 pages challenged my patience too much), and I'm definitely going to try this.

I know this thread is sort of dead, buuuttt.... I made a Circular Shrug!! It still needs a clasp or some ribbon or something. Time to go accessory shopping -- woo!





Do you like it? I'm very proud of the result... this thing took me ages!

Yours turned out SO much nicer than mine!!! It looks great! You have a right to be proud of it! (Mine, I used the wrong yarn or the wrong needles, whatever, and it was way way way too stiff.)
