It was a great travelling project and was mostly done on a three hour train ride to Barmouth in Wales last weekend. Staying with two small children in the same hotel room for the weekend affords a great deal of being-quiet-crochet-time while they got off to sleep for two evenings. There was of course the journey back too. We cycled the Mawddach cycle route from Barmouth to Dolgellau (in pouring rain) so we were very proud of big Sis who managed 9 miles on her bike. Little M sat waterproof in the bike trailer for the whole journey, lucky her!
Between playing cards and picnicing on the train these rows worked up really quickly.
You could add sleeves from the pattern but I wanted a small neat shrug. I finished the edge with a picot of three's. Three Double crochet and then 3 chains, slip stitched into the first chain, then repeated.
If I made it again (which I will) I will make my shrug more snug! I was a bit generous with my back measurements when I started because I was using Cotton yarn and I knew it would have little give but the back is a touch loose.
This is a great pattern based on you measurements not on your yarn so you can make it in whatever wool you have in whatever size you are - genius. I used, not quite, two balls of patons Cotton 4ply in navy blue; that is the colour of the moment for me right now.
Have a happy week. Jo xxx
