When I saw this pattern in Knockout Knits, I was immediately diving through my stash to find the perfect yarn. I choose a laceweight yarn and adjusted the gauge to fit the pattern, and it turned out beautiful.
I wanted a lace shrug for this Spring, something to keep me cozy but feel free in that warmth, this patter fit that perfectly.
I knitted this pretty darn fast, but the FO pics, took forever, and then just posting them took forever. I have worn this a few times already, and keep it folded nicely in view because it looks so pretty.
I'm rather choosy these days for my projects, I like to aim for complex or outside the lines patterns, and this was a nice one, not difficult, but not your typical construction. Laura is so helpful too, with any questions on her patterns, that was awesome.
Here are the final FO pics...
Pattern: Quadro Convertible Shrug
Yarn: Araucania Trauco
Notes: Used laceweight yarn; errata fixed by Laura Nelkin; all notes can be viewed on my Raverly project page here.
I've got a few more things in the works, progress is being made, I'll post as I have time, which can be hard, but I'm excited for each day that gets closer.
I wish we had more rain, the drought is saddening, but I guess until then, we can all enjoy the warmth of Spring. Happy Spring!!
