FO!!

Once Upon a Time Productions presents...

THE TWO-TONE (ONE-TONE) RIBBED SHRUG!



This was such a quick and enjoyable knit. If I made this again I would trust my instincts more than my gauge (which was a bit off, so I decided to knit the smallest size) and would make this bigger - as you can see, it is a little on the small side... Still, it was fun and I've already worn this today. Also, the yarn was wonderful to work with - Knitpicks Andean Treasure - I can only recommend it.

Stats:
2 1/2 skeins of Knitpicks Andean Treasure in 'Granite'
Needle Size: 4.5 and 2.

  1. You look fabulous! It's hard to believe you recently had a baby. And the shrug looks great, too. I love the color you chose.

  2. The shrug looks great and fits fine, not too snug at all. And like Beth said, wow, you really look fab!

  3. I can only add to what the others said - you certainly got your pre-baby figure back quickly!!

    The shrug looks fabulous, as do you. I'd dismissed this pattern as not for me but yours looks great - I think just using one colour makes a big difference.

  6. That's a really pretty shrug and I love the colour... and you are looking fab! I am with Carolyn, it's a really nice pattern - I didn't like the pink and purple but in another colour the shaping really shines through.

    I love that little shrug! Does it come with complementary plastic surgery?

    It wouldn't look like that on me!!
