Description

I have this vintage white sweater-shrug that’s adorable but beginning to fall apart. So this past weekend I messed around with some measuring and came up with a pattern for it. It’s a little roomier than the original, but not bad as far as I can tell—-and now I can have one in every colour! (Black version—-mine; white version—-original)

Full construction details and pattern posted on my blog

Material Notes

A soft, medium-weight sweater-knit I had in stash—-virtually identical to the original fabric!

    Very pretty. I love that gray/black/white skirt you are wearing.

    Lovely, well done! What a coincidence that the material from your stash was almost identical to the original shrug. Happy wearing :)
