I was looking for a pattern for a shrug, when I came across this one.
Till date, i never tried to make wearables (ones that need actual measurements, to be precise), therefore, the gauge was a little tough for me to follow. Mainly because i didn’t have access to the mentioned yarn, and had to improvise. BUT, after a considerable amount of do-overs, here it is!! :D
I had to use cotton yarn (given how long and cold our winters are!!), and decided to make it a little colourful. So it’s not totally as per the directions. But hey, an artist has the rights to her own rendition, right? ;)
This is a wonderful written pattern By Susan Palmer.
I was honoured to be one of the test crocheters! :D and hence this finished piece. Susan was gracious enough to use my picture in the pattern. Also, the best part about her work is that this pattern is a gift from her. It’s free on Ravelry.
Here’s hoping i find a customer for this so i can make another one. This was so much fun to make! Cheers!
