The pattern is from the Staff Project special from the Summer 2005 issue of IK (http://www.interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/web_projects/Shrugs_instructions.pdf).

I made a rather glaring error in the first few rows and did K2 tog instead of K3 tog after the ruffle on the first sleeve. And didn't realize this until I was too far along to turn back! So my shrug wound up 1/3 wider than it should be (and hence used 1/3 more yarn than it should have!). But I actually rather like it like this.

I used Mission Falls 1824 wool in Raspberry.

And it can live an alternate life as a scarf! (as most shrugs can probably do)

I made this, but i might frog it, cause I don't think i like it with the yarn i used...

(before i sewed it together)...i didn't have enough of the blue yarn...

I really like the way it looks in the Mission Falls (i used Jo Sharp Silk Road)

And I actually like it with the slightly less ruffly sleeve...

I made this as well recently, and I have to say I think your mistake was a blessing in disguise. I wish now that I had made it just a little wider (just like yours in fact!)
Great job! I've been enjoying mine, I hope you get a lot of use out of yours.

You gotta love multi functional knits! Thats gorgeous. I have toyed with the idea of making this, and seeing yours come out so well makes me want to even more.

Amazing.  I love the fact that's it's 'dual purpose'.

I love this, as a matter of fact I was oggling the pattern in my past issue as a gift for my SIL's birthday.  Now I am making it for sure.

You've just gotta love clothes that can 'multi task'  Grin
Nice job!

Thanks, all!

Uglygreen, the idea of a multicolor one like yours (even if it wasn't really intentional) is a pretty darn cool one. It looks nice!

I'm kinda' bummed that when I was steam-blocking mine, I ironed one of the ruffle sleeves and it flattened the ruffle all out (the one on the right-hand side of the "scarf" photo above). So I didn't iron the other one. I wish I hadn't ironed the first one, as it took the stiffness out of the ruffle and made it just kinda' loose and wavy.
