One More Retro

Here's my Retro Redux Shrug - mine took a little more yarn than the pattern specified (still, only 3 skeins of Rowan Calmer #461) and I added 3/4-1 inch of edging on size 9 needles to add a bit of curve to the fit and lengthen the back. Like another knitter posted, mine also fit a little snug around the arms - which could be due to seaming - but I wouldn't want go up a size and it fits fine now. This is a great pattern and a great little shrug to have while travelling; it's small enough to fit in handbag and will keep your shoulders warm on those unexpected cool nights!
