Shrug it Off

So, I bought the Fitted Knits book by designer Stephanie Japel some time ago - it's a great collection of pretty, practical and actually flattering patterns that are designed for most body types or can be altered to fit you, no matter how you're built. My friend Danielle had already made the Two-Tone shrug from the book and, after trying hers on, I had major covet. It wasn't until I lined all my stash up side by side that I realized just two skeins of my favorite yarn - Malabrigo worsted - was more than ample to make a garment. The shrug fits beautifully and is warm, not itchy, and probably going to become a wardrobe staple on chilly weekends at home, for certain. It works great over a tank top, too - a great way to extend your summer stuff.
