Oh good. This really is an ingenius little thingy, and quick. I made this last summer to keep from freezing to death at a convention where the AC was insanely cold.  I started when I got home and had it finished in a couple of hours to wear the next day.

I wear mine all the time in the summer, when I go to movies and the AC is too cold for tank tops. It folds up and fits into my purse, too. Very handy.

This was the pattern which got me back knitting after years away from my needles.  I used some (less than 50g I think) Sirdar denim-style acrylic I had kicking around from a baby sweater I'd made for my daughter, it worked up in a couple of hours and I have worn it to absolute death - I adore it.

I would post a pic, but it's in such a sorry state after being chucked in the washing machine a hundred times over and suffering plenty other abuse it's getting rather tired.  Time for a replacement, I think.

Ok, I love how this looks on everyone else, except myself Sad It makes me look slouchy. I was thinking of adding a collar but I am not quite sure how to go about doing so, any suggestions ?

I honestly don't know the different types of collars, is there any nice one that anyone can suggest? I was thinking of just knitting a rectangle and sewing it on, would that work?

OOh that's cute!  I'm a teacher, and I'm always looking for ways (other than cardigans and my jean jacket) to make all my cute strapless or spaghetti strap dresses appropriate for school.

It sounds like it might...but I'm not too sure.

Since this project doesn't take up much time or yarn, you could just try experimenting with diffrent alterations and designs.

what yarn are you all using to make this? i think i might start mine in some simply soft that i probably won't use for anything else.

Hmmm okay so I love this shrug except I'm not really wild about the whole drop rows. Maybe I could just garter or st st across the back?? lol Or maybe I'll just try this first and try my own version later.  Cheesy And maybe I will make longer sleeves for that one...gee, I'm totally off.

I also wonder if this is possible to knit with some bulkier yarn...maybe on some larger needles. I've got some lovely alpaca wool that I'd like to use up. It's too pretty to sit at the bottom of my yarn bag!

Is there a way to make the sleeves longer? I wouldn't mind having them to my elbow...

I guess just repeat the first 2 rows more?
