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 made this in the small size and there's no way you can do it with 3 balls. I don't know where they got that from. I think I used 5 and I, too, was on gauge.

Email them and let them know. Maybe they'll send you some free samples for your inconvenience and for letting them know they made an error.

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.
