1031  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Circular Shrug / Vest - Scale Model - TUTORIAL on: October 15, 2005 04:14:53 PM
I did stockinette for the center portion because the mock rib just took way too long for me and drove me crazy after only a few inches.

hey shana, how did you decrease/ increase stocking stitch in this pattern? I am thinking of also doing it in stockinette, and the dir i have are for mock rib.

Thanks to everyone who started this, you are all amazing. I was up until 5am reading this whole thing, because I just couldn't believe how easy it all seemed, and since I am a slow, not beginner but ADD kind of knittah (i like short projects with fast results) this is perfect for me. I am so, so, so excited, because I just bought a George shrug like this from Walmart a week ago in pink with a ribbon closure (like chiaobella's but longer) and I had no idea it was so easy to make, so I am going to return it and make my own!

I have always wanted to make myself something to wear but I have very lg boobies (40DD) and I am a size 16, so usually discouraged by how long it would take to make something for moi  - btw mamaloo, have I ever got junk in mah trunk! Kiss

Anyway, I am larger and proud of it, so I did a lot of math at 5am  Roll Eyes  (good lord) and figured out I will have to CO 298 sts, and work for 10in in the ribbing part at least to fit za gazongas. I will have to look through my stash (its in the bsmt, my lovely and nuturing hubby, goes down to retrieve what I need every time I ask, what love) and see what I have, but I might buy some Caron or Red Heart, or Bernat....
I had the same experience as someone else on this link with cheap yarn, i washed it and it was so soft and wonderful, a totally different yarn. I made a sweater for my husband out of Bernat Super Saver and I was regretting it partway through because of plasticy smell and texture, but when was done and washed, it is the softest sweater ever. I am no longer a yarn snobette!

Anyhoot, I am getting my digital camera in a week or two and at the same time, I will (hopefully) be finito this project, so I will post pics, maybe inspire some of those other larger hot knittah mamas out there!
