Ok here is mine....I like it, but it didn't turn out exactly like i hoped.  I decided to add the ribbed collar right at the end, but I like it.  I used a skien of caron simply soft i had laying around.  I want to try one using the other method and see how it turns out.  This thing is lacy, but boy was it hot to try on in this heat!!!!

I don't know about you, but I think that would look nice if you picked up stitches on the bottom edge and made it into a tie-front shrug. Am I right?  Huh

Everybody likes pink. People who think otherwise are in denial.

ok here was my try. i started off using the T-method, but then realized that it was a bit small so after binding off in the middle, i cast on some more stitches to make the shape of the shrug (pre-seaming) kinda like an H on its side. i will definitely have to try again, but this is the one for my friend (and thank goodness she's smaller than i am since this shrug was a bit snug for me)

it was a combination of both i guess. i tried to do it as the T-shape that the yesterknits pattern called for, except that i cast on the long edge (instead of casting on the short end like the yesterknits pattern called for). i don't remember how many stitches i cast on exactly -- i think it wsas around 150. then i did 2x2 ribbing for about 6 inches, switched to mock rib (from keri's pattern) for 6 more inches. then i cast off to try to make the bottom part of the T shape, but realized it was going to be too snug... so i frogged back to that point, and cast on a bunch of more stitches to add more room to the sides of the shrug. i'm planning on knitting another one, i promise i'll write down more details when i do!

Um... I've never posted a picture before, so here goes.

I finished the Yesterknits pattern this afternoon.  I made a more summery version using Cotton Ease.  It took 2 balls for the smallest size.  The only adjustment I made was in length, because I was concerned about it being too long.  Looks like I overdid it because now it's on the shorter side.  Overall, this was a really easy knit, almost relaxing.

My gauge was 5 stitches/ inch so I cast on 55 stitches to start with.

I may still add some length, and hopefully a little extra to the shawl collar.  I'm thinking about picking up stitches and knitting in 2x2 ribbing for a few inches.  Otherwise, this pattern is really simple, and the result is fairly cute.  Can't wait to see more.

(Sorry about the bad picture, there is motion.  But I'm home alone.)

This is very cute.  I just received the pattern.

I am also thinking about using cotton ease.  I have two balls of cotton ease in my stash.  For your version, did u have a lot left on the second ball?  Or do u think I will need three balls to make the yesterknit pattern.

I'm working on keridiana's original idea (but knit in one piece)...And I figured something else out by looking incessantly at the photos from the UO website...

knit the mock rib section about 20 inches (or 4 inches longer than you were planning for your arm hole), and seam two inches into the mock rib part on either side.  This creates the cap sleeve effect.



I'm not there yet, so i can't post pics, but i've tried it on...and i think that's the ticket!   Will keep you all posted.
