Glitter Shrug

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

24 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS).

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.

Glitter Shrug Reviewed by Linda Goris on 2013-05-03 ****
I haven't learned to crochet yet and for others like me that see wonderful patterns in crochet format that they'd like to knit, this pattern is very similar to Pattern #: L30117 which is the Canyon Crochet Shrug. I made this one and it is beautiful and quick to make but I used a little heavier yarn (weight 3)because I was concerned it may stretch with wear over time.
