After a full day's wear, my Veronique shrug stretched in the upper back where the gathers sit. This flattened the gathering a bit and also made it easier for the shrug to drift off my shoulders. I followed RebekahJean's (ravelry) lead and added a row of single crochet on the wrong side, pulling the yarn through the purl bumps of the K3tog stitches. It worked like a champ! The shrug is much more stable in the back.
