Like Wearing a Blanket!!! Reviewed by Michon Santos on 2014-08-17 *****
My daughter decided to take this for herself since it's so lovely and warm. Folds up easily and feels like a blanket on cold winter nights. Can get monotonous but is definitely worth it. Also made the crochet version using the homespun which turned out to be more of a spring shrug.

Just finished this in Vanna's choice grey marble. It was a fast knit, I used a moss stitch for the edging instead of the rib. It is beautiful! I only needed 6 balls of yarn my measurements were spot on so I'm not sure if the moss stitch effected the amount of yarn needed. To get the curl out of the sleeves and the pocket like drape out of the derrière use steam through a towel. I also found that just wearing it helped with the back drape.As a previous user noted make sure your seams are clean because they show in the front of the sweater. Worth the time!

I call it my Barley Shrug as I used Vanna's Barley color. I absolutely love this pattern. So easy. Im 5'9 and between a size 16-18 so I added about 20 extra stitches and maybe an extra 1-2" in length and fits perfectly. Got lots of compliments...and orders too! LOL

My first time to make anything in apparel. This shrug was super simple. I have gotten alot of compliments. It reminds me of being a teenager and wearing one of my Dads sweaters with a pair of jeans, white blouse, and of course one of his ties losely tied around the collar,top it off with a pair of clogs.

I have made 3 shrugs, one from this pattern, very easy. The curl in the back was solved by not making it so long. I measured it to only go just below the waist line.

very easy to knit. I do, however, agree with other reviewers and wish I had taken their comments to heart. The bottom edge of garment sways and curls under. I had increased the length of ribbing to 6 inches, hoping it would stabilize bottom hem, but it didn't help. Garment looks as if it has been pulled out of shape. It's a no go for using the particular pattern again.

The pattern says öne size fits all", but, you must adjust the length to your height or the height of the recipient. It tends to run long. I also added a rib edge to the sleeves for a more finished edge. Be careful when seaming. You'll need an invisible seam that is not messy on the front.

I had my doubts but i loved the design. I added a braid design going down the middle of the back. it actually took fewer balls of yarn same measurement I guess I knit tight. but any doubts?? just knit it you would be disappointed!

great pattern, I made it in the Vanna's yarn, in silver blue. Although I love the color, I do NOT recommend this yarn! it is NOT at all providing good drape and I just don't like the feel or hand of it. Use a nice soft worsted, and it will be fine.

Harvest Shrug Reviewed by Geni Zaleznak on 2012-08-25 *
I just finished this project and was very excited to try it on only to find that even though my gauge and measurements were exact there is a huge derričre sag that is quite unattractive. It looks just as cute as the one in the picture as long as I don't stand up!
