Pattern: Retro Redux Shrug, by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark, Lace Style
Yarn: Cascade 220 #7811 Purple Jewel Heather
My uncle got married yesterday (Congrats to Rob and Holly!) Earlier this week it occured to me that I might be a bit chilly in the dress I had planned to wear, so I whipped this up in 3.5 days. It looks a little bit rumpled in the photos because they were taken after the wedding. There was no time before the wedding, I was weaving in the ends in the car on the way over.
This was a fast fun project. The lace pattern is very very easy and goes quickly once you have it down. I didn’t do quite as much ribbing as called for (ran out of time, heh). I liked the gauge I was getting on #9s, so instead of going up a size as instructed I added stitches over one arm and took them out over the other arm. I made the largest size, and used just under two skeins of Cascade 220, but I might have wanted a third if I had done all the ribbing. I would definitely recommend this pattern.
