Shrug took about 7 hours or so total. Finished it yesterday. Couldn't keep it on very long - it's warm! Looks like it might be November before it can be worn. HaHa! Or, it might be a Christmas gift.
Started with this pattern downloaded from Ravelry:
Yarn: 100% acrylic - Lion Jiffy
Size 13 knitting needles
Very interesting construction - it's made all in one piece and you sew up the "shoulder" seams. I did not add any crocheted edging. I had slipped the first stitch of each row and it left a nice enough edge to not need more.
Might make more of these later. Could even change the ribbing to something else. Hmmm.....
