Beatknit Shrug

Bell Sleeve Shrug, by Beatknit. I ended up with 3/4 length sleeves, and I figured out what went wrong. "Work straight st st until piece measures 26 (30, 30, 31) inches long." I did that, from the bottom. I'm assuming, if you work 26" long from the end of the decreases for the cuff it would be the right length. Vague free patterns. Sheesh ;) It looks cute on, but my neck looks pretty sick right now. Made out of Caron Simply Soft.

I agree, a very nice job! I think I'll be giving it a go myself.
Hope to see you in it soon when your feeling better.
I think you would look great in that colour especially with your hair!

I found this pattern as well, and I almost made the same mistake, but i got to where I would've started the increase stitch and thought "there's no way 31 inches is long enough..." so I figured instead of until entire piece is so-and-so inches, she meant from the last decrease.

Yours turned out nice though! Mine is kind of lumpy.
