    1. Smaller lol...start with half the size of an adult size and adjust accordingly depending on the size of the child

  5. Hi there
    So I got ten rows in and tried to stretch the ends to my armpits around the back of my neck. Way small despite my gauge being correct....hmmm. Will try this on my toddler tomorrow. Maybe I can salvage for her!

    1. Read the pattern carefully, make the piece measure at least 17", depending on your size. You are crocheting from one armhole to the other, across.

  6. Thanks for the free pattern! Hoping to make one for myself soon. I usually end up attaching these things wrong, we'll see how it goes.

  7. I'm starting your shrug this very moment in an acrylic/wool blend which results in a mohair-type yarn...in RED!! It's a washable blend too. I've been looking for a purrfect shrug for hours (=

  8. Made this, using the body pattern for short sleeves about 6 inches long. Easy to modify. Makes possibilities endless. Thanks for the pattern. Genius!
