I'm into the last of the ribbing.  Did anyone do this part?

*BO2, 2x2 rib across* rep from * to * until you get a nice rounded shawl collar that is about 8" at the longest.

I'm just getting to the last of the ribbing, and hadn't planned on doing this.  In fact, I never even saw it in the directions.  Do you have a page number in the thread?  Sorry - 25 pages is way too many to browse through, and a real search turned up nothing.  It does sound like a neat idea though.  Did you do it?

Right here. Scroll down some. And nah, I didn't do it

I discovered this thread only yesterday via Julsey's blog... I saw the photos of her finished shrug and loved it, so I came on over here and read the whole thread.  So impressive!  This is really the very best of Craftster.  So I decided to cast on for my own circular shrug.  I'm using some recycled black Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and size 10 needles.  My gauge is (intentionally) a bit bigger - 4 stitches/inch and so I cast on 158 stitches for the initial ribbed section.  I'm thinking of doing a different pattern on the body - maybe lace?  maybe a different rib?  we'll see...  I'm so psyched about this project!  Thanks, y'all!

I finally finished mine. What a pain in my butt. My big boobies kind of get in the way though. I still love it! I have to get a nice brooch for it though.

bronxie - great job!  I know what you mean about this thing being a pain in the butt - I just cant seem to get this last ribbing done!  On the plane today....

Thanks for the link to that last part of the BO instructions - I must have spaced out on reading that at the end of keridiana's tutorial.

gloriana - I think I might try this again in a bigger gauge.  I don't have the hear to to do all that mock rib in worsted weight again!  Post pics so I can get inspired!

Does anyone have a picture of the shrug that you've finished knitting but not seamed up yet?  I'd love to knit this but I'm confused.  Is it knit in one or two pieces?
TIA

Thanks Nixx.  So, it's one piece, rib, mock rib and rib again then the top rib is seamed to the bottom rib?

Ellenknits: that's correct.

I'm just about to CO for my own.  I made a Word Version of the pattern, if anyone is interested in slipping it into their workbook... Let me know and I'll email it.

So, i am doing it in handpainted Colonna 140 in Burgundy.  (I just got four or five rows past the first drop stitch in Clapotis when I realised that I wanted a more worsted weight yarn for the clapotis - so I frogged the whole fricken thing and prepped for the Circular Shrug) It's recommended for 8mm needles, but I only have 7.5 (and then 15mm, but that's a tad big, I think!  Haha!), so I swatched it on th 7,5mm needles. 

Funny:  my swatch is in two very distinctly different guages!  The first half is knit at about 3st/inch, then, I suppose I tightened up on my tension because it's measuring 3.5st/inch!  So, I averaged it out and her are my measurements: 30 inches across the shoulder at 3.25st/inch x2 for the cast on: CO 196, reduce to 98 for the mock rib. 

I let y'all know how it goes!

Thanks! I have to take in the sides because the back part of the rib is too loose on my lower back.
