I finished Cat's shrug...again. I'm much happier with it after ripping back and redoing the ribbing without the extra rows. The pictures aren't great--I really should have put on a different shirt--but I will get better ones of my sister wearing it when I give it to her at the beach next week.
Textured Circle Shrug by Stefanie Japel (free pattern)
Yarn: 4 skeins of Lion Brand Cotton-Ease (50% Cotton-50% Acrylic/3.5 oz/100g/207 yd)
Needles: Size 7 (24" circular), Size 5 (16" circular--sleeves, 29" circular--ribbing and seed stitch)
Modifications: I knit my sleeves in the round instead of flat. I added two extra stitches to the armpits. Before the last round of garter stitch on the sleeves, I did 3 sets of decreases to tighten the sleeves.
