A summary would be nice maybe...

Well, I've made some progress on my circular shrug...

http://www.elizabethklett.com/images/circular1.jpg

I cast on 158 stitches, knit in rib for 5", then did a decrease row - but left 4 ribbed stitches on each side.  I'm knitting the body section in a pattern called "King Charles Brocade" (which I found in Vogue Knitting's stitch dictionary).  I'm about 8" through the body - nearly halfway!  I'm thinking about knitting a little flower and making a pin out of it to hold the shrug together when it's all done... more later.

Just wanted to repost that I have made a Word version of the pattern.  I've included photos and instructions for creating your own custom version of this shrug.

The pattern is based on julsey723's version and includes her photos and Keridiana's illustration of the seeming diagram.  These two smart ladies receive are credited with the pattern as are the other participants in this thread (unfortunately not individually).  I've included a distribution disclaimer limiting distro to personal, non-commercial use, except by express permission by myself, julsey723 ad Keridiana. 

I could use a volunteer to PDF the pattern, to make it more portable.  But, if you would like a copy of it in its present form, feel free to contact me via PM or request in this forum.

And for those of us who don't want to be swallowed by its length, I propose the following variation to my schemata!!!

Measure across back. EDIT:  ADD 4-6" TO THIS TO MAKE IT KINDA OVERSIZED AND CAUSE CAP SLEEVE FORMATION?  Figure out from gauge how many sts you'd need for that. Multiply that by 2. That's your CO #.  Knitting from bottom to top now:

CO__ sts.

*k2, p2* rib for about 5". This will be your bottom hem so you decide.  Keep count on how many rows you do here: __.

*k2tog, p2tog* across.

Now mock-rib stitch for twice the length of your armpit opening.  I think about 14-16" total, depending on how roomy you want this to be.

*p1, m1p (make 1 and purl it), k1, m1k (make 1 and knit it)* across. You want to be reversing the  2x2 rib so that when you seam the 2x2 rib sections together, you can seamlessly match up the 2x2 rib.

2x2 rib for same # of rows as you did above.

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

Cast off.

I'll try a little model of my own soon......




I have a question regarding the step where you increase again.  *p1, m1p, k1, m1k*  etc...
I do this step with the right side facing??? or the wrong side?
 I'm almost done! Please help! : )

The .pdf has been sent to dear mamaloo, after a network crisis here at work almost prevented me from sending it, but she's got it in her inbox.

If you absolutely need it RIGHT NOW, I'll be at work for another 20 minutes or so (4:45 p.m. EST) and I can send it over your way.

Great work, mamaloo!

A great way to make .pdf files is www.pdf995.com.  It's free all you have to do is look at a sponsor page. To turn of ads you can pay like $10.

I host my .pdf files on my geocities page, but they can have a problem with bandwidth overload if something is really popular. Nothing I post is that popular, but this pattern probably would be.

A free file hosting site like www.savefile.com offers unlimitted downloads.
