I was inspired by all the shrugs the knitters were creating (especially vysews drop stitch), and since I don't know how to knit, I made my own crocheted shrug.  Yay for crochet!  It's done with lover's knot stitch and took only ~4 hours and one plus a tiny bit more balls of yarn.

That is absolutely gorgeous, i adore it. I may just die if I don't knit/force my knit-savvy mother to knit me a shrug.
The little sleeves are so cute, and the colour is gorgeous, especially with that top. Is lover's knot hard? I can crochet a little, but I'm not sure if this is too hard for me...

I want your lungs to stop working without me.

Lover's knot is an unusual type of stitch, but is not difficult if you have good instructions.  I just taught myself off the internet via this pattern, the ultimate lover's knot instructions...
So to make use these instructions, you don't actually have to make their shawl, just repeat rows 1 and 2.
Any others I found didn't make nearly as much sense because this one sets you up to actually make a series of the knots interconnecting.

This is really gorgeous. I've been wanting to make a cardi of some sort and I think this might give me the courage to do it.

Your shrug is absolutely lovely; hard to believe it was made in only four hours. Might I inquire as to a pattern or schematic?

I have gone to find myself, if I get back before I return please tell me to wait. Thank you!

This is so nice...  I've knitted a rectangular shrug, and was just thinking of doing another one this morning...

Did you crochet a flat piece for yr shrug?  What's the dimension like?  It's so body hugging and nice.

i love this!!! i really need to jump on the shrug bandwagon. it is so freakin hot here in alabama and i can't wear tank tops to work...no naked armpits! but the heat is hideous and we can wear something over it... anything even if it is shear. please do share your fitting secrets!
