Now the patterns today are more my sort of style. I must admit I am very partial to several of these and have made a couple of them several times. I hope you will find some to help you out in your search for gifts. Enjoy !
Needless to say this can be made in any color you choose but I have made mine in dark blue just because blue is my favorite color. Very simple and quick to make.
Now this one I have made several times and have not found a color I didn't like yet. I did change the one for my Mother and made it a little wider for her, she really likes to wear it all the time.
This shrug is very easy as there is not much shaping to it. It is more of a sweater to me than it is a shrug, but it still works up nicely.
This is one that you really want to cuddle up with. I made it out of the softest yarn (don't remember the name) and my Aunt just loved it because she could stay snuggled up all day.
