The yarn for this project was originally to knit up "My So Called Scarf. However, I was so frustrated with how it was turning out with the thicker yarn I pulled it all out and started this shrug which I found on Ravelry for free.
It was very easy to work up Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky on size 10 1/2 and 11 needles. I love the Redwood Forest colorway. This was my first attempt at a top down construction and I now have a new interest in the top down ragland style.
I'm looking for more top down sweaters to knit and want to do more with different weights of yarn.
