WIP: Self Designed Shrug.

What I’m working on right now is this self design. I’ve wanted a shrug for a long time already, since I love wearing short sleeve all year round, but sometimes I need the long sleeves. So I finally bought the yarn: Katia Himalaya, 50% merino, 50% acrylic, 86m per 100gr, in shade 47 (sort of faded blue jeans), and casted on 8mm needles and after many swatchs and maths I came up with this:

It’s an easy k2p2 ribbing, with decreases at the wrist, and shoulder shaping, all fitted to my long big arms and wide back – the joys of knitting yourself, it will fit. This is the first sleeve, I’ll work both from the cuff up and then draft them in the middle of the back. More pics when this is finished, and perhaps the pattern I did too.
