6 hours later I bound off the final stitch and weaved in the final strand - done! I LOVED that it was such a quick knit - very, very satisfying!
Isn't it cute?
Too cute! What I didn't know (because I didn't pause to read the feedback before I started knitting... a case of haste makes waste if ever I saw one) was that though it said "One size fits all", the comments also said, "... if you're a size XS!!!
I present to you...
Ah well, thankfully I have a 7-year-old niece who found it very cool to receive a shrug knitted by her 'Auntie Ria', and once I feel up to it, I'll attempt to adjust the pattern and make a different one for myself.
It DID look rather cute on Sully though...
