Finished Mohair shrug/bolero! – EDIT: LINK TO PATTERN

Is it a shrug? Is it a bolero? Not sure what the difference is, to be honest.

This pattern is real easy, basically it’s a 2×2 rib rectangle, then you double the number of stitches you started with over one row, and then continue in 1×1 rib. At which point you get this.

Then you just sew the thing together to make a shrug. I actually strayed from the Belgian Lady’s instructions a bit ; i thought the fit was more flattering if i positioned the seams where I ended up putting them. In the original pattern, the seams are lower on each side, more shrug-like, but then the armholes are way bigger and gape a bit around the shoulders, the fit is more slouchy. A matter of taste, in the end.

Overall, I’m really happy with this mohair adventure, it was ok to knit, a bit boring especially toward the end when you have about 200 stitches on your needles, but then it’s quick enough to finish it without getting frustrated. And so little seaming, which is always a bonus!

  1. epatant ton truc… j’ai compris que tu avais modifie l emplacement de la couture maisil faudra que tu m explique ou et comment exactement.
    Si tu avais du courage ca pourrait etre pas mal de completer avec un haut sans manches tres echancre su r les epaules (style emmanchures americaines) en jersey ajoure d un peu de point dentelle. Ca pourrait meme etre tres habille.

  8. This way, everyone would know what to do in case of an emergency.
    Brands differ on the types of equipment available now
    for any water going vessel. Use some simple ideas like the following:
    – Don’t play with matches and to ”stop, drop and roll if your clothes or hair catch fire. Swift Rlock 2 U232-3 N has a three-hour burn rating, which is a technique used to starve wildfires of available vegetation and help stop their forward spread. The extinguisher s heat-sensitive bulb acts like a sensor of sort, clearly reacting in rising temperatures.
