I’m Not Feeling The Love Here

No, I’m not feeling the love for this pattern.  It looks beautiful on the needles, but I kept thinking the top looked awfully small.  It’s not a traditional sweater, but a sort of shrug-capelet thingy where you put one button at the top to hold it together at the neck and then it goes out sort of in an inverted V, capelet style.  but still, i was getting worried.

Front_1 It seems hopelessly small.  Does anyone really think blocking can fix that?  I am sensing total disaster and a real concern that this shrug is in no way going to possible fit around my body.  Motivation for a diet? 

Back_1 In any event, the back view concerns my worst fears that even though I’m dead on gauge, this pattern has issues.  But the yarn is really lovely, isn’t it?

  1. Blocking fixes a myriad of evils… try it before you have no faith in your shrug anymore. I think it is lovely so I hope it works for you!
