Gloriana, I just love the look of your shrug.  I was wondering, in your decrease row did you just knit two across or how did you do the decrease row?   Cheesy  Also, what type of yarn did you use?  It has a wonderful look!!

I'm using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran - it is so nice and soft and lovely to work with.  For my decrease row, I left four ribbed stitches the same on each end, and then purled two together all the way across (I was doing it on a wrong side row).  In order to get the right number of stitches for the brocade pattern (which needs to be in multiples of 12 stitches plus 1 extra) I decreased one stitch at each end of the next row too - I K2tog at the start and end of the first row of the brocade pattern. 

hope that's not confusing...

Im loving the brocade Gloriana and the color you chose.  Are you using the aran or chunky cashmerino? (I noticed you are knitting with 10.5's)

Gloriana - that stitch pattern is so great...so much bang for the knit/purl buck.  Really nice!

There's a couple of things I would do diff seeing how I casted on too much. I wore mine yesterday and I had to take in the sides. I keep having to pull it down because my boobs are big.  I'm thinking about making another one. Next time I would: C/o less, work ribbing for  5 1/2" (I only worked 4 and a half cause I got lazy).  I still wear mine and get a lot of compliments. You guys are genius Smiley

i made a shrug length one, and i don't reccomend it. the cowl doesn't look as good. i'm going to rip it back and make it regular length.

I've had about 14 requests so far for the pattern.  Woohoo!  I consider that a success.  I hope everyone who is using it finds it helpful.  Thanks should definatlely be heaped on Julsey and Keridiana and Sammy, without whose original notes, images, and pdfing abilities I wouldn't have been able to create this pattern.  

So, now, I've posted it on my blog.  It's at the top of my sidebar and I've renamed it the "Craftster Circular Shrug".  http://momcast.blogspot.com/2006/01/craftster-circular-shrug.html

I can't wait to see more finished shrugs!

Awesome!  I'm about half way done with mine.  It's super chunky which is great since it's getting to be winter already.  I'm actually doing just 1x1 rib for the body.  I'm going to have to do at least one more of these!  So great!

mamaloo, thanks for putting up the pattern! Much easier than gleaning from this long thread.  Wink

How much yarn did everyone need for this? I want to make one, but I don't know how much yarn to get (or dig out of my stash).

Ok, I plan on casting on for this one tonight.... I do have some questions...

Has anyone made longer sleeves? I'm thinking of doing this, but I want to know if anyone else had success with it.

I also saw that someone above me mentioned making a shrug sized one vs regualr size.... Does this mean if I follow julsey723's directions I'll get a shrug sized one?  I'm only concerned because I am a bigger gal and don't want knit and knit and knit only to end up with a little shrug. Something a little bigger would be good so maybe I just knit the ribbing longer and more mock rib? I better figure it out soon, since I'm starting tonight. Mamaloo, I think I'll join your KAL.
