While I'm at home laid up with the most wicked of ear infections I took the opportunity to knit one of my favourite shrug patterns, "Kaya Easy Cropped Shrug" . You can find it by googling it or on Ravelry. I used 4 skeins of Berocco Peruvia Quick wool color 9177 and dye lot 71575. I purchased it a few weeks ago at London-Wul. I modified it by knitting the body for 8 inches before rib and bind off and I also knit 10 rounds on each sleeve before rib and bind off. This is such a cozy cropped cardigan that is easy to knit and modify. That makes it a great project.
