Bobblicious

Quick! Before it became summer, I needed to finish up this enormous, bulky, heavyweight project.



This shrug was knit from the Bobblicious pattern in the Winter 2005 issue of Knitty. I made a few modifications to make it more enjoyable to knit and to make it more to my taste.



Believe it or not, but I made the bobbles smaller than the pattern called for. I increased them to 3 stitches instead of 5, as directed in the pattern. I also staggered the bobbles rather than lining them up on every row.



The last modification I made was to knit this with the stockinette side as the right side. The pattern called for the reverse stockinette side to be showing. I preferred the way the yarn looked on the smooth side.



And, speaking of the yarn, this was knit with the yarn the pattern called for: Lion Brand Thick & Quick. I am glad that I didn't invest too much money in this project because I am not sure how much I will wear it. I can imagine that it would be nice to wear as a bed jacket type garment while reading or knitting in bed. Time will tell how useful this shrug is.
