This is a quick knitting post for a quick-knit project*. The Taylor Shrug, specifically. Once I got the concept of what the thing I was making was supposed to look like, it was a very easy knit. The directions are minimal, which is not necessarily a bad thing, since much of the directions that are there are how to customize the sizing. Minimal directions, however, meant a need for lots of thinking and some math before I could get started.
I love the lacy cable pattern. This particular shrug is made up from a bit of Cascade 220 yarn I had left over from a project I had made for myself (not blogged yet because it needs the perfect blouse to be sewn up to go with it).
Since this pattern is meant to be customized, I could make it up in my size quite easily (if not as quickly). I think I’d like one in an emerald green color.
I might have to make her a pink one for ballet class.
* The rest of the outfit is ready-to-wear stuff she’s had for a while: shirt from The Children’s Place, and shorts that were hand-me-downs from her cousin.
