Crocheting is very conducive to thought. It's nice to crochet a while, put down the hook, paint for a while, take up the hook again then watch the Housewives shows, then work on THE SHRUG. This has been my life for a while now.
The pic that hooked me in to wanting this shrug
I got the free pattern and bought the stuff to make it
What the heck is this? It doesn't look like the pictures.......
I didn't know what was happening so just kept on hooking and this appeared
I made the next piece, still not sure if i was making it right
Then it said sew the two pieces together
Now.....where does my head go? Do i make another one for the front, or back and where are the sleeves?
My piece doesn't look anything like this diagram. Did i make it wrong? The construction notes says
1. The shrug is made in 2 pieces, an upper half and lower half. Each half consists of half of each sleeve and a center section.
1. Center section of upper half forms the shoulders and collar. The center section of the lower half forms back and sides.
3. The upper and lower halves are seamed along long straight edges. OK; i get this step but it still doesn't look right to me. Next it says
Side and sleeve are seamed and then cuffs are worked. Where are the side seams? I sort of get where the cuffs will be but how or where are the sleeves; how and where do i seam the side and sleeves and still be able to put it on?
4. The shorter straight edges of the upper and lower halves form the front opening.
Huh? My brain is hurting trying to get a grip on this. I need help, please!
