Ruffle Shrug Reviewed by Carol Zalek on 2013-07-15 *****
Love this pattern! Finished one and started another - but why not offer a larger size. It's easy enough for me to calculate the increased stitches and inches I need, but not everyone can/likes to do that.

I made two for two of my granddaughters, two for my daughters-in-law and one for myself. I will probably not stop. SD

This is a nice pattern but I agree that the construction instructions don't match the photo. The photo matches the incorrect instructions that have been crossed out! Ignore the picture and follow the instructions and it'll turn out beautifully.

Trust the original pattern!! Reviewed by Kris Piper on 2012-01-28 *****
No, the way the assembly of the shrug in the original pattern doesn't match the pattern photo, but it DID fit my body better!! And I LOVE it! After knitting the basic rectangle as described, I pinned the pattern together the way the experienced reviewers recommended, then I did it the way the pattern recommended, and it simply fit better. I really like the way it fits and the way the ribbed pattern runs down the back much better. It IS odd that the website photo isn't the way the pattern is described, BUT it IS much better. I am SO HAPPY with the end result! This is my first ever "garment" for the body, besides socks. Thank you, Lion Brand!

Made this for my daughter in a Vanna light grey yarn. She loves it.

I made the shrug in black yarn with the varigated black and white ruffle. Will make it again with a wider ruffle.

Cute idea, but the pattern doesn't match the outcome. I teach knitting, and while I do not consider myself an expert, I do think of myself as an intermediate knitter, and I had trouble with this pattern. The directions are not very clear on how to pick up stitches for the ruffle, and if I had followed the pattern (even after checking gauge) this would have turned out way too big for who I was knitting it for. More of a woman's medium instead of a teen small or extra small which is why I had picked this pattern. A bit disappointing, but I was able to make it work, and it is still going to be a nice graduation gift.

Cute. I even knit it with a broken wrist - no kidding!

I made it as written in a soft sand color and it goes great with a long sleeved black vneck tee.

I think I will make it in blue. I am a size 4-6 petite.

To have a rib pattern, the number of stitches to cast on
need to be a multiple of 4 ~
(I'm trying 132) instead of the 130. Otherwise, the odd rows would have to be P2, K2 across instead of K2, P2 as directed.

Ruffle Shrug Reviewed by suzanne Axtell on 2011-01-24 ****
I just finished this tonight! Well, I haven't woven in the ends yet, but I'm very close. :)

I was also confused by the instructions to match the cast-on/bound-off edges. Thanks to the commenters, I knew it might be an issue, so I basted it both ways before deciding how to seam it before starting the ruffle. I felt it fit a little better with the sides meeting (which looked like the picture) so that's what I did. I'm a woman's M-L so I made it longer than the pattern. I think if I had known how I was going to fold it from the beginning, however, I would have increased the width rather than length.

Overall I'm happy with how it came out.
