Circular shrug













Finished this circular shrug last night...must admit it has been hanging around for about 3 months....as I wanted some straight knitting at that time and then found it didn't keep my interest. Anyway it is very easy to do straight for about 32" and then joined on the sides. I think there is a pattern on knitting pattern central. I knitted it in double knit on 4mm needles. The size is for a 36" 209 cast on stitches.....5" rib and then 20" stocking stitch then 5" rib. Sew up side rib and then 4" in or whatever is comfy for you. Now here I must admit I could have done with an extra inch or two in length...but unfortunately I ran out of wool.
I now have a confession to make after much deliberating and keeping away from "RAVELRY"....I have succumbed....I know I'm sorry but the pull of everything interesting on there was too much and there's so many interesting groups, even a "BOHUS" group..... I am desperate to get my hands on a kit but at £83...hmmmm! after Christmas just a tad too much for now. Anyway in the meantime I am still waiting for some circs that I ordered to make the Dream In Colour baby jackets for my DDs twins.

Very nice! :) I'd love a circular shrug, and have been eyeing up the pattern for a while, but I think I'm way too chesty for it to be flattering on me.
