Update on Veronique

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.

It's absolutely darling! I love how chic the back styling is.

BTW, I wish I were an owl at times too cuz it sure would be handy to see what I look like from behind - although on second thought - maybe it's a good thing I can't. LOL

Veronique looks great! I appreciated your tip about substituting sport weight yarn. I love KSH, but don't know if I could do a whole sweater in it at this point.
