Knitted wrap

What is this? A bolero, I think? A shrug?

Anyway, I've actually had this done and worn for a couple of years now, but I don't think I ever blogged about it. It might actually pre-date the blog. Since I wore it yesterday, I took some pics. I wore this a LOT while I was pregnant last year since it doesn't involve the tummy at all and is really warm considering it's lace and not very covering.

The pattern was a freebie from Elann that I can't find on their site anymore. The pattern was just for a vest. I added the sleeves by picking up stitches at the armhole and knitting down in the lace pattern until I ran out of yarn. Since the stitch pattern is ribbed and lace, the sizing was very forgiving.

The yarn is a really nice merino/cashmere/? blend I bought here in Germany during the first year we lived here. I got it to make a vest for my hubby but quickly realized I hadn't purchased enough for that. Maybe it was subconsciously intentional, because I love this little shrug!
