A dear friend gave me some wool last week that she’d been given by an elderly relative and didn’t think she’d use. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for a shrug. I trawled the internet for patterns but really struggled as the wool was aran weight. Eventually I settled for the Short ‘n’ sweet shrug pattern from the book “The Happy Hooker”.
I’ll admit, I wonder if I’d like it to be a bit longer, but I ran out of yarn. It’s an old, discontinued yarn too. So it’s tough. However, the pattern was pretty easy to follow, especially with the extra help notes I found on the internet. It’s very warm and snug.
