Fudgesicles?

« on: April 09, 2007 07:01:15 PM »

I've browsed around the internet for what I am looking for, but maybe I overlooked something and would love some help from fellow Craftsters Smiley

Two weeks ago I went to Savannah and went to the LYS downtown (Wild Fibres, a really lovely place) and got two skeins of Knit One Crochet Too's Ty-Dy cotton yarn. Ever since I have tried to find a pattern to use it for, but haven't really found what I am looking for.

I want a shrug that can be done on circular and/or straight needles, for I am not good with DPNs, has sleeves above the elbow and has some sort of lace. If you have any suggestions it would be most appreciated! Thank you!

Go over to the KAL and Completed Projects forums and search for shrugs. There's the One Skein Wonder, Mini-Sweater/boobholder, Anthropologie inspired Capelet (which is really a bolero sweater, and shruggish) and the Circular shrug. They're all pretty easy and mostly done like a topdown raglan, except for the circular one, but there's only a little seaming.

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

Easy Shrug Formula :
Pick out a stitch you like and swatch.
Measure your back from shoulder to shoulder; figure out how many stitches to cast on and knit a piece that is the width of your back square, approximately.
Pick up stitches (equal to the number of rows) along each edge for sleeves. You can knit the sleeves flat and sew them up later, or join and knit in the round after 4-5 inches.
For a looser fit, pick up the stitches around the inside and work outward (if you make this edge wide, it will fold over like a shawl collar at the neck and add length too the back).
I've knit three shrugs thiis way; it's super easy and they fit very nicely. I'd use one skein for the back, and split the second for the sleeves.

I've looked there before, but I am crazy picky about what I want Wink My friend is getting married next month and I need a shrug to go with the plain dress I am going to wear.

Ooh, I like that idea! Maybe not for this, but I definitely plan on using it in the future. Thank you to everyone for the suggestions Smiley
