This is a great little pattern I found on Ravelry (of course) Not only is it a great shape, but you can work it in any gauge yarn you want, any size you want. You can improvise all over the place - add contrasting ribbing, throw in a lace panel, or change the stitch pattern across the back. Just two little seams, and you've turned a fairly simple piece of knitting into a fabulous, flattering garment. I'm about a quarter of the way up the back section.
Here's a close-up of my lace panel insert
I'm using Ellyn Cooper Metallo in Vercchino for the ribbing and Sublime Cashmere, Merino Silk for the back. Shelly, Sheila, Cindy. and Joan are working on the same design in different yarns. It's really cool to see how this shrug turns out in other fibers.
