I have been meaning to put up the pics of my finished Shrug! I finished it about a month ago and have worn it quite a bit. It is the Granny Square Shrug from the Crochet Modern Vintage by Panda. It was an easy pattern and came with the crochet diagram as well as the written pattern. I thought the hard part was choosing the colours but for me the hard part was the monotony of all that plain black granny crochet between the granny squares.

|This shot looks a bit busty, apologies, but its meant to show the side view|
|This is me trying to look all interesting and alluring like the model in the pattern.|
I am pretty tall/big person so always need to adjust patterns for length and this was no different. Instead of having 8 squares on each side I have 10. This is an easy change to make and I guess you could make it smaller the same way too.
|This super easy pattern is more or less a rectangular lap blanket|
