I'd be curious to try this, but the link takes me some place weird.  It looks like German and I don't see a picture of a shrug.  Is this right?

edited to add: OH CRAP!! she's right, it's gone and there's a german error message in it's place! hopefully thisis just temporary, b/c i didn't save it anywhere! did anyone else??

Well, my site is down for right now, but it will be back up soon, hopefully, tonight.    Since I'm not at home right now and don't have access to a copy of the pattern, you will have to rely on each other.

If somebody has it saved, please share with those who don't have it.

ok i've already got a dumb question...
how do you do a foundation double crochet?

I have a book with Instructions for Foundation Double Crochet.  Here are the instructions.

1   At the end of the row of dc, yarn over, insert hook in same place as last   double crochet was made and draw up a loop.  There are three loops on hook.

2   Yarn over and draw through one loop.  This makes a chain one (ch 1) stitch and three loops still remain on hook.

3   Yarn over and draw through two loops.  Do this once more to complete a foundation double crochet.

4   Yarn over, insert hook in the ch 1 a the base of the previous foundation dc and  draw up a loop.  There are three loops on hook.

5   Repeat step 2 and 3, another foundation dc made.

Sorry I could not get a good picture with my digital camera or I would have posted that too.

Hope this helps.

Yes, I'd like to try making this shrug.  My name is Andrea Shuman (nickname is "Cookie") and I belong to 4 different Crochet Guilds.  This coming weekend (Oct 29th) is our Southbay Guild meeting and one of the ladies is planning on teaching us how to create a shrug. 

I would also love to try your shrug, which I located the pattern form.  Thank you very much.  I have two different types of yarns and I'll have my mind made up by the time Veteran's Day comes around.

I started this shrug and had to put it down so I could make my x-mas gifts, but now that you all have made it, I REALLY am looking forward to finishing it. I went to a yard sale last summer and got myself a box of yarn and crochet cotton (a big box) for only $5! Woohoo. There is sooooo much white crochet cotton there. Now if I could know for certain if I am using the right size hook (Huh?) If I could get the gauge that would be a big help, I haven't gotten very far, I think if I remember right, instead of counting stitches, since I was using cotton, I measured around the back and made the starting chain that long. So far, so good.
