Simple Shrug Completed

I have no clue how to get a good picture of this shrug, because it won't lay 'open' like it would if you were to be wearing it.......so this is the best I could do. I wish I had a model to wear it, but I don't, so I hope this gives you an idea of what it looks like. The arms go into the sleeves and the rest just sorta wraps around your back, so that your arms and shoulders are covered. The top part is the back collar, and the bottom part is the part that goes around the back at the bottom. This is an easy pattern, and can be found at: http://www.caron.com/projects/shadows/sss_shrug.html The yarn is very soft, and nice to work with, but one thing I found is that you need more yarn than the pattern calls for. I used 2 more skeins than it said to use, so if you make this shrug, be aware that you will need extra yarn.
