Projects Olivia's shrug/modified
Many people have written me and asked for the pattern changes I made to my modified version of this pattern. 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.
