FO - Liquorice with a twist

FO - Liquorice shrug

FO - Liquorice shrug

FO - Liquorice shrug

Pattern: Liquorice by Megan Marshall (soon available to buy - details are here)
Size: small
Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4 ply (2 balls)
Needles: 3.25mm needles, 3.25mm crochet hook
Modifications: I accidentally knit a garter stitch version but I don't think it detracts from the basic look of the pattern and I really like it. I also knit an extra repeat of chart 2 for slightly longer sleeves.

I was so pleased to be able to test-knit this for Megan. I liked the pattern as soon as I saw it on Ravelry and as you don't need much yarn it's a great way to use up any odd balls of 4 ply left over from a larger project. In fact I think it would work fabulously with lace-weight too if you wanted to make something really dressy. I'm not quite sure how many shrugs a girl really needs but I know this would be perfect with at least 4 more yarns in my stash.
