Has anyone made this shrug? The pattern is on the ball band of Simply Soft Shadows. I am in the process of making it in a size small. The directions state that the finished measurements excluding the cuffs is 60 inches. I am getting the gauge with the needle size recommended but I am using so much yarn! The pattern calls for 3 balls for the small size and I have already almost finished with the 4th. I am on my way to purchase my 5th ball which I think will do it. Has anyone else had this problem?
I just finished the shadows shrug and what a disappointment. I used almost six skeins just to get the correct striping and the back bunches up. So now I will frog it and redo the back to shorten it by four inches. And I also have gauge. The company needs to redo this pattern. I knitted the small. The arms fit good, although when I redo it I won't sew them up quite so far.
