Another Shrug in the Works

Since the pattern is fresh in my head, I decided to start another shrug. I'm using a really cool yarn called Denim Chunky by Sirdar. I found this yarn in the clearance bin at my LYS. This will be perfect for casual wear.

I'm actually further along than the picture shows below. I'm getting ready to knit the ribbing for the sleeves. I'm still on my first of two skeins of yarn. I'm thinking of lengthening the shrug so it falls at my high hip area. I tend to make my decisions at the spur of the moment. We'll see what I end up with.

Another Shrug This-WIP

This shrug looks like it will be slightly larger or loose fitting even though I CO the same amount of stitches as my previous version. This Denim Chunky is a nice yarn to knit with.

Pretty colour! I get more wear out of my longer one that my shorter one for some reason...

I was thinking about that. While I like the cropped or short version, I feel like it doesn't cover that much and I seem to be tugging at the shrug. I'm still looking for a ribbon in my notions stash to sew on the backside of the edges. I think that will resolve my tugging issue. :)
