Golden Honey Shrug

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour®


18 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Shell Lace pattern with larger needle and 2 strands of yarn held tog. 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.

Golden Honey Shrug Reviewed by Gail Z on 2014-09-23 ****
I have just finished this pattern, and although I love the pattern, it does not fit as pictured. I am 5'6" and about 160# and it hits just below the shoulder blades and not close enough for me in the front. I may make again though and increase the length and width so as to fit my needs. And I will probably give the original one as a gift to a petite friend.
