This is a little drop-stitch shrug I did for my mom. She has been wanting a black shrug, and so this will be her Mother's Day present.

I really like!  Did you design it yourself or find a pattern?  Either way, it's gorgeous.  Smiley

Thanks, guys! Here's what I did. Sorry--I don't have enough experience to be able to write other sizes since I don't know what the other measurements are "supposed" to be. But I added some thoughts on that at the end. If you find unclear parts or errors, please let me know! Oh, and if anyone actually makes this, I'd love to see your results!

Yarn: Rowan Cotton Tape in shade #556; 3 x 50g balls (71yds each)

Needles: US #10-1/2 and #11

Gauge: 14 st per 4 in garter st on larger needles

Size: XS


Cast on 42 sts using smaller needles.

Rows 1-14: Knit (Odd numbered rows are WS rows)

Switch to larger needles

Row 1: Knit
Rows 2-5: Knit
Row 6: *K1, yo, rep from * to last stitch, K1
Row 7: *K1, drop stitch, rep from *  to last stitch, K1

Rep Rows 2-7 till this section measures 17  or desired length (it must be long enough to stretch across your back, plus any extra to round over the shoulders and create sleeves of the desired length).

Then knit 5 more rows

Switch to smaller needles

Rows 1-14: Knit. Bind off all stitches in knit.

Fold in half lengthwise, right sides together. Seam up garter stitch sections at ends of piece. Weave in ends.

Notes for other sizes:
-Its probably more important to figure out your gauge with the smaller needles and then cast on enough stitches to make it fit around your arm
-If you want a larger difference between the width of the sleeve section and the width of the body section, use a larger needle for the body section and/or do some increases.

This shrug is amazing!! I've been trying to find a pattern for something simple put pretty like this Smiley. I just want to make sure I get the pattern....this is all one piece and the sleeves are not seperate? How did you finish it and create the sleeves? Could you post a couple of close up pics? Thank you!!

Yay!! Thank you for the pattern... It doesn't look too hard. I may have to try this tonight Smiley I've never made anything sweater-like before.
