I recently finished another shrug...I'm rather pleased how it turned out. I used a soft acrylic yarn in a dusty blue color. I originally used the pattern out of the One Skein Wonder book, but have changed it around a bit to give more of a sleeve.
The buttons are actually vintage earrings from my collection! They are made of tiny dyed seashells. I think they are are fun to use on these little shrugs.
