Pink Shrug

Today's FO is this pink shrug that I started a few weeks ago. It's a pattern I found online that I tweaked a bit (don't I always?) It was supposed to be knit cuff to cuff (but that would make the cuffs different...it's feather and fan pattern and one cuff would be backwards) It was also supposed to be knit flat and then seamed up from the wrists. I don't THINK so....in the round, if you please! (but flat in the middle, of course)

Anyway, here it is, being modeled by the lovely Kaitlyn (middle child) after being grafted together up the middle. I don't know if I am going to give it to Kim as planned, or keep it for myself. I think it may be a bit big for her (but just right for me ...tee hee...)

UPDATE: I have finally found the link for this pattern again. You can get it (and 2 other vintage Mary Maxim Patterns) here. This shrug is Style B.

My changes:

Knit cuff and sleeve in the round for a total of about 12 or 13" then knit flat until piece is 24". Repeat for other side, and use Kitchener stitch to graft together in the middle. This makes a 3/4 length sleeve....just knit each piece longer if you want longer sleeves.

(And maybe include your tweaking too?)

It (your version) is beautiful!
