Caron Shoulder Shrug

I saw this Shrug today.
What a pretty design! I love the color and wonder how it will look on a ‘full figured’ woman. I think I might try to adapt it by using a lighter weight yarn – not so bulky looking. Why is it that I am always drawn to the garments made with bulky yarn? My body is bulky enough, thank you!

Maybe someone can direct me to a ‘look alike’ that is made in lighter weight yarn so I don’t have to do the trial and error thing……

    That is beautiful. I hope you are able to find just what you are looking for, in the light weight yarn. :)

    I just finished the same shoulder shrug. It is beautiful. I chose Vanna’s Choice acrylic in Onyx, it has a jeweled effect. You will have to increase the pattern because the wool is so light weight. #2.

    I finally found the below pattern, and it has adjustments for all sizes. Hope it works out. (I know it’s been several years since you posted this.)
