  • I love it. Just one thing I wondered, what should the dimensions be on each finished peices by? I understand this will vary to some degree depending on your size and how you want it to fit, but I just wanted something to work off from for my first granny shrug. I can't wait to show it off to my hooker friends. Thank you so much.

  3. 3. <ul><li>Round 2 </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Round 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure that you have chained 2 between the treble clusters on the points of the hexagon & only chained one between treble clusters along the sides of the hexagon. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Round 4 </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Round 5 </li></ul>

  9. 9. <ul><li>Round 8 </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Round 9 </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Finished hexagon motif. </li></ul><ul><li>You need to make a second. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>The hexagon shape will fold in on itself to form an “L” </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Once you have two hexagons completed lay them out as pictured. </li></ul><ul><li>If you’ve made the motifs reversible as I did then there really isn’t a right or wrong way to put it together. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Starting at the neck seam down the centre back seam. </li></ul><ul><li>I switched to a smaller hook so that I wasn’t trying to jam the monster 15mm through the stitches & just concentrated on making my stitches nice & loose. I used double crochet. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>If you think you want to edge the shrug just “hold your place” while you seam the shoulders. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Position your neck opening & add markers. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Seam along to your marker. </li></ul><ul><li>Again, I used double crochet. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>Once you hit your neck marker just slip stitch along the back of the neck opening until you reach the marker on the other side. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Then double crochet the other shoulder seam. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Now you can pick up the loop you marked at the base of the centre back seam & edge the garment if you wish. </li></ul><ul><li>I edged this one with double crochet. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Now weave in your ends. If you’ve used the Wilderness 100g balls then you shouldn’t have too many…hooray. </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Wear your shrug with pride. </li></ul><ul><li>Seams in (as pictured) for a lovely drape OR seams out for a more structured look. </li></ul>
