This is cute-- thanks for posting a pattern!

It seems more tank top friendly than the one skein wonder, but maybe I just need to do a deeper ribbing in general.

Can anyone who has made this pattern tell me:

whats the gauge for this???  Huh

I am a larger girl, and I want to make this but am afraid I will follow directions and end up with a totally tiny thang!??!!!

My back is 23" from shoulder to shoulder... can anyone help me?

Or is this a one size fits all patt?

Thanks in advance!  Cheesy

I don't think guage really matters, but if you are worried about the arms fitting you could just do a guage swatch in seed stitch and then measure around your arm to make sure its not too tight.    Once you start the back you just knit until it stretches across your back and then you do seed stitch for the other sleeve.
I hope that is helpful.

hi all I made this last night but didn't sew it up right, I now understand to have the back wider you just keep knitting more rows... I didn't actually realize I didn't know how to put this together, so I made it and sewed it, and of course, it didn't fit! I will try this again, and hopefully get it right this time.

Thanks for all your help nuttybunny and meg!

I know this hasn't been posted in for a while...

but I just wanted to say how great everyone's shrug looks, and that I will most defiantly be making this.

I think this looks really nice and am trying to make it but I don't know what this means: drop yo, are you dropping the stitch or?

You're dropping the yarn over. (So you are creating that long lacey stitch in doing it.)

That is great!  I needed a good stash-busting project to prepare for my move this summer.  However, the pattern link is down for me.  Anyone else getting the error?

Yeah, I know.

But nuttybunny has posted it on Pg 3, which I'm following.
