Quickie FO

"Anthropologie Inspired Capelet"
Actually, I think this more of a shrug. It fits comfortably enough, although I must say that the shortness feels very weird, having never worn a shrug before.

I don't generally photograph very well, so this was the best we could do. Note the Wavy Sock in the bottom right hand corner? Bonus feature.

Pattern: Anthropologie Inspired Capelet

Size: 10-1/2" circumference upper arm

Yarn: One ball Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky (Grass 130)

Gauge: 12s = 4"/10 cm on Us #11 dpns ( I should have used straights on everything but the sleeves)

I like this pattern. I started it Saturday evening while watching some videos and finished it this morning. It doesn't show in the picture, but this color of Wool-Ease is actually kind of heathered. I wasn't sure how much would be needed, so I bought two balls. Any suggestions for what I should do with the remaining ball?

Hey great job! Nice to have a project finish in a short amount of time. I have admired that pattern before - what size would you say the directions are for? Or is a truly one size fits all?

Very cute! Ummm, what to do with the extra ball... A hat? Some mittens? A blanket for your cute patootie cat?
