Crocheted Candy Apple Shrug Reviewed by Beth Hamm on 2011-06-23 ****
I used a different yarn and had to adjust my hook size to match gauge (as others have stated). This could easily be made with any number of different yarns.

I have 14 year old twins and a 12 year old and all 3 of them went nuts over this. I guess I'll be making, at least, 2 more of these. Although... my 12 year old LOVES to crochet and she could definitely handle this pattern on her own so maybe I'll have her make her own. As a matter of fact, she's working on one right now for a Barbie doll.

When I made this to see if anyone would like it, I was amaze at the comments I received I will make this again.

I made one for an aunt and once everyone saw it, they had to have one! I am working on my third one, and each has been different. I shortened the first one, because she wanted 3/4 sleeves. I also used a chunkier yarn for one and used a larger hook and it came out well. It's an easy pattern to make. But I would definitely fit to the person wearing it, because of length/fit preferences.

I found this quite boring to make but the end result is worth it. Be careful of the length. Mine got a bit long. It is quite stretchy. I like to wear it with a broach on the side to help keep it in place. I have gotten many compliments while wearing this sweater. I also turn down the neck part so it folds down like a collar.

Love it, love it, love it. I converted this pattern to a knit pattern, my first attempt was a little on the small side, so I used a chunkier yarn with a bigger guage, and the second attempt was much better.

I had fun making this, but the end result wasn't what I expected. I found the sleeves tight on the upper arms and the wrap length too short for comfort. I'm also busty and the width of the wrap was awkward to wear over the chest area. It just needs a bit of adjustment for anyone over a size 8.

i was looking for something challenging, and this looked it. by the pattern, it seems simple! i wonder how it will turn out. 'till then i guess!

i didn't make it as long as the instructions. i liked it okay, but ended up undoing the seams for the arms, and turned it into a large wrap/scarf.

Very cute and quick pattern! (It's warm and cozy, too.)

Just started this one. Seems very easy but I just don't see how I'll end up with sleeves. Guess time will tell. This is exactly what I was looking for. : D

This was really simple to make and I added some different silk yarn to the sleeve ends. I did make a small mistake so it wasn't as stretchy as it could have been but it is still a fun and funky sweater. There's about four different ways to wear it.
