Interesting how the long sleeved shrug can look completely different on the main pattern link above (in lime green), versus the website hosting the pattern, where it is shown in the garnet color. I think perhaps because the model actually has a body! The mannequin doesn't. Pattern reads nice and simple with a nice diagram included. This might be something I could try for myself.

This is a bad link

Hi, Jolie. I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/AllFreeCrochet Good luck! - Editors of AllFreeCrochet

I am having difficulty understanding how to complete this shrug. I completed the main part of the garment down to the finishing. But now I don't understand how to proceed. If anyone can clarify/simplify the instructions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! Jolie
