Purple Rainbow Boucle' Shrug

Finally, I got a chance to take pictures of the finished Purple Boucle' Shrug I've made for Knitwits. My daughter is the model.

Pattern: Personal (not available)
Size: Womans
Yarn: Jo-Anns Sensations Rainbow Boucle' in Purple
88% Acrylic, 12% Nylon
Needles: Addi Turbo Circulars 8 and 15.
Cast on: June 9, 2010
Finished: October 9, 2010

Comments: I can't believe how lightweight this shrug turned out to be. It can't weigh more than 4oz., yet it's toasty warm. I know because I tried it out. Too bad this yarn has been discontinued. I used a very simple drop-stitch lace pattern.

I love that one cuff is light purple and the other one is dark.

Live long and prosper. \\//

  1. Lovely! I made a sweater from that exact yarn. Sadly it didn't turn out nearly as well as your shrug and I tossed it in the frog pond.
