The shrug for knitters afraid of sweaters.
I haven't been knitting for very long, and I have to admit... sweaters scare me. Everytime I read the patterns, they're talking about circular needles and making armholes, stitch holders, attaching sleeves... It just sounds far too complicated considering I've been doing mostly small projects.
Recently I felt the need to branch out and knitted up this self designed shrug. I did it all on straight needles, and just about all you need to be familiar with to knit this up is ribbing, and minor inc and dec.
It's given me the courage to think about actual sweaters. I love this shrug, I even got to use little heart shaped buttons.
If there's enough interest I might be willing to share the pattern on my newest creation.
Please leave comments, I'd love to know what you think!
