Slinky shrug - from ˝hot patterns˝

I found this wonderful free downloadable pattern for a shrug. I was so curious to make it because I wanted to see if it was going to be as perfect as it looked. I've used black knit (I think it's 100% acrylic, even though it feels like wool) for the shrug and a black jersey (viscose) for the ribbing. I made a size 18 even though I'm probably a size 12, but I wanted something more slouchy. It turned out OK. I made an alteration, I added 20 cm piece to the top ribbing because it seemed to me that it will be too tight.

Next time I would/ will probably make it a bit smaller, so not a size 18, because it is a bit big for me. All in all, it is a good feeling to have something warm over your shoulders.

By the way, I love hot patterns, so far I've found quite a lot of their free downloadable patterns on the internet.
