Olivia's Shrug

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

10 sts (1.5 shells) + 4 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Shell pattern stitch.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Olivia's Shrug Reviewed by Lisa White on 2014-03-05 *
I am SO disappointed and unhappy with this pattern! This came out so small it cannot be worn. My gauge was actually larger than recommended but I thought it would make the shrug fit a bit looser. WRONG! It is so small my daughter who is a size 6 thought it was too tight.
The pattern could certainly do with better images and a serious rework of the instructions.
This was to be a gift and now I will need to start over on something else. Sure wish I had read the reviews before I spent so much time trying to figure out how to adjust it so it would be wearable.
It will be a while before I waste my time on another LionBrand pattern.
