for Knitting Pure and Simple   2008

288 Little Girl's Shrug (18 months - 10 years)

Soucy: "This is one of the fastest sweaters you can knit for that special little girl! Sizes 18 months to girl's size 10, written for heavy dk or light worsted weight yarn at a gauge of 20 stitches to 4 inches. It has directions for an optional lace edging also." Fast is one thing, and welcome, of course. But look at the yardage requirements here: you only need from 150 to 400 yards (137 to 366 metres) of the DK or worsted yarn. Which pretty much gives you permission to buy anything you covet. In fact, it's a moral imperative. And the more you make of these pretties, the more you'll want to. How often do you get to be self-serving and noble at the same time?

I've loved this pattern for ages and was itching to knit it once my daughter was big enough. I love the simple style with a little bit of lace that looks cute without being overly fussy. Like all Knitting Pure & Simple patterns, it's very well-written and easy to follow and as they say, incredibly quick to knit!
