Little Girl Shrugs

Pattern: Little Girl's Shrug from Knitting Pure & Simple

Yarn: RYC Cashsoft DK #516 sage & # 525 kingfisher - 2 balls each

Notes: Easy seamless knit. It would be a wonderful project for a first sweater. Knitting Pure & Simple also has a similar women's pattern. It would make a great mother/daughter sweater.

I had a little trouble with gauge, even though I used DK weight yarn which is what the pattern called for. The pattern is easily adjusted, though, by just continuing the raglan increases. Another fitting advantage is that it is knit top down, and therefore can be tried on by the recipient as you knit it.
My girlie-girls are going to wear these on the first day of school. Won't they look cute?

Very cute! Ever heard of The Pink Zebra in Katy, TX? It's in "old Katy" on 1st street. They sell stuff that Mommies make. Didn't know if you were interested in selling your knitting but it's definitely something others would like!
