made: ridged verona shrug

Hi everyone! :)

I finished my Scheepjes Verona shrug! (blogged about the yarn here, blogged about the WIP here)

This was such a fun project to work on; it went fast, the yarn was gorgeous, the work went smooth – what more can you wish for? And I got my friend Lotte (who has the most awesome dreads) to model it for me!

Stats
Pattern: Ridged Verona Shrug, on my blog next week, FREE!
Yarn: Scheepjeswol Verona in colour 2
Hook size: 7mm
Happiness level: Very very very happy!
Time it took to complete: About 2 days all together. It’s a really quick project :)

So the good news is that the pattern for this shrug will be on my blog next week, for FREE! Hurray! The pattern is very easily adaptable to different sizes and shapes. You can make it longer than this one, or wider, or both – the sky is the limit!

The Verona yarn was very lovely to work with as well. It’s a 50% wool/50% acrylic blend, but contrary to what you might think, this yarn isn’t scratchy at all! It’s very very soft, and it’s perfect for garments. I blocked my shrug and it really made it drape just perfectly.

I’m already thinking of other yarns and colours I can use to make another shrug! It’s really comfortable you guys – it really hugs your shoulders and keeps you warm :) I’m thinking of making a nice, really oversized, grey version – what do you think?

Can’t wait to see you again next week when I share the pattern with you all!

xo,
