Boucle Shrug

I finished knitting this sweater a while ago, but found it didn't fit well - too big. I tried it on again and decided to add lacing to the back. I used a snippet of "trellis" by Lion Brand and attached it with silver jump rings. It fits much better now. Too bad it's summer, haha. I'll have to wait for the weather to cool off before I get to wear it again.

The pattern is found here:


  1. I suppose washing it and hoping that it shrinks is not something that works well with home knitted stuff?

  2. I actually did wash it (although a couple people told me it would fall apart). If anything, it is now bigger, even after a trip through the drier. The lace in the back fell off, but that was easy to fix.
