Olivia's Shrug


Many people have written me and asked for the pattern changes I made to my modified version of this pattern. I am working on a third one and writing directions as I go.  I will post more when I get to the point where I start making changes. You have to start with the original pattern from the Lion Yarn website.  It is a free pattern, and can be found on Ravelry.com in the pattern section along with pictures of the two that I have modified. You will need more yarn than the pattern specifies if you modify the way I did. This will depend on the size of the sweater, I allowed about 100-200 more yards for the changes I made and mine was a small.

The advantage of making the modified version is that it fits more like a jacket.  The mohair is very light but also warm enough to wear in the winter.
