Hey guys,

My co-worker just got back from London and she said she saw a shrug just like the one I made at the Miss Sixty store. So I checked out their website and lo and behold, on the 4th page of their fall collection the "Littlecherry bolero" almost a dead ringer for this pattern. It looks like the only difference is standard ribbing instead of seed-stitch. Oh, and they were selling them for 60 !! rediculous!

That is awesome! I love it. Did you make changes other than the obvious--longer sleeves, longer sweater, stripes?

I am actually not sure what I did. I think I followed the pattern with the plan to make it short like the orgnial but I had so much yarn that I just keep going.

Here's mine.



The yarn is actually sort of shiny, it doesn't really show in the picture.
I didn't mean the neck to be so big, it just kind of came out that way. I guess I'm a bad gauger. Tongue (if that's the word Huh)
