I’ve always loved shrugs and whilst I was in Stockholm recently, I saw a pretty little one that I wanted to buy, but as it was Sunday, the shop was closed, so I made a point to go back on the Monday before I headed off home, only to find that the shop was closed then also!
On the flight back, I made some notes as I only had my memory to go on, but when I got home, I attempted to recreate the pretty little thing I saw draped over a mannequins dummy and here’s my version……they’re lovely for throwing over a nice top or dress and keep you snug and warm!
I’ve made 2 grey ones now - one initially for my friend Corina (still waiting for a photie hon!) and when I saw hers, I had to have one for myself!
And then I made another for my friend Steffi, but this time with a ribbed cowl neck top - and yeah, when I saw how hers turned out, I had to have one for myself also!
As you can see from the detailed photo, I've crocheted both edges to make it nice and fancy, as well as the addition of a little bow on the side of the shrug, as I love to embellish things and it just finishes it nicely!
Then the very last one, in cream, which I wore to bits whilst I was in Lech at Christmas!
And another in progress in a lovely bluey grey colour - can see me making as many of these as those mittens of mine! LOL.
But this one will be a present for someone or other I’m sure!
