For her birthday, we bought Miss Button a pack of bulky yarn, as she’d said she wanted to learn to knit.
I’m fairly sure I don’t need to tell you what happened to that yarn…..
Yep, I knitted it.
There are surprising few patterns out there for tweenagers that require bulky yarn.
But I came across this pattern for a shrug and set to.
It’s a lovely pattern and a quick and simple knit. I’ll admit it’s a tad roomy for Miss B at the moment, but that’s not a bad thing. She’ll get lots and lots of wear out of it. It’s a great throw-on for cooler days that don’t yet need a coat. And, for a girl with a passion for all things flamingo, it’s just the perfect colour.
I altered the neckline so that there is a defined top and bottom to this shrug.
The yarn is squooshy and soft and reminds of that Minky fleece fabric.
Not something I’d want to wear, but a hot pink, squooshy, fleecy shrug is quite the thing when you’re 9 and 3/4s.
