Sherbert Shrug

This was something I'd been wanting to try to make for awhile, and finally did. So easy, will definitely be making more, as gifts and for me. It's the Anthropologie-Inspired Capelet. I used Bernat Softee Chunky in the Carnival ombre colorway, which I didn't think I'd like (hot pink and orange? no thank you), but it's actually really cute.

A quick knit b/c of the bulky yarn, too. I accidentally forgot to do the initial neckline ribbing, but I ended up liking it better so that worked out nicely. I crocheted around the front edges and neckline, since I wasn't going to use a clasp to close it and wanted it to come further around. I think it looks nice and 'finished' with the crocheted edging.

PS) I was wearing this purple tank when I tried it on to take a photo tonight. It actually matches (sorta), but I will not be wearing it with this in the future. A plain white tank will look much better.

Hey Whit!

Love it, and the colourway! It looks great on you. How I wish I was slim enough to wear things like that.
