Crochet Circular Shrug For Me and Faye

Hello,

I saw some pretty crochet circular shrugs on google search.  I saw this pattern here.  However, I couldn't make the shrug based on the diagram so I changed the pattern from 6 petals to 8 petals.

It turned out more like a sweater than a shrug since I added the sleeves.  It looks really cute on her but she didn't really like it.  She didn't even give me her best effort post.  I think it was because of the color.  She likes a deeper blue color.

I really like how it looks on Faye so I made another one for myself.  I used cotton yarn for mine.  I heard that the cotton yarn stays in the original shape better.

Thanks again for looking.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Those are really nice. I love the edging on that. I in awe of how you are able to alter a pattern to make it work. I have to do it the way it's written and even then I have problems some times
