Yes, I’m still knitting the Tropical Nights Shrug from one of the recent Cast On Magazine knitting patterns.

 The body of the shrug is done.  The ripple edge lays flat.  Since it ran down the fronts and around the back, there were over 450 stitches per row.  So it took a while to complete.

Knitting Pattern: Still Knitting the Tropical Nights Shrug?

Because the yarn is acrylic, it doesn’t block like the original yarn.  The original blocking is a large open lace pattern.  This project is turning into a tighter lace pattern.

Next up are the sleeves, and one is started.

Please leave a comment about your favorite way to adapt knitting patterns to your own yarn or style.
