I have searched online for a shrug patterns in all the free places and even the pay sides of those same sites. From what I can see, they patterns would be too difficult for me, or not exactly what I wanted. I'd almost need someone to sit next to me and mentor me through the project.
I want to make it a lace shrug so my mom can wear it in FL in the hot months when she is in the buildings cooled by a wickedly huge A/C system.
The one I chose was free from Lion Brand and is called EZ Ruffled Coat. I want to use DK Swish yarn Knitting Gauge: 5.5 sts = 1" on #5 needles (3.75mm) 100% Superwash Merino Wool. But the pattern isn't lace. Now I know that so many of you guys have just taken easy patterns like this and jazzed them up with lace. Any suggestions? This will be my first wearable garment, other than scarves and hats.
I just want Mom to have something warm enough to keep the chill off her shoulders and back and arms, but not too warm in front.
So my talented fiber artisans, what say yea all? Ideally, I would love to find one that doesn't have any seams to sew at all. Maybe you have some good ideas as to how I can take the attached pattern and make it lacy.
Thanks for the help.
