I've had this sweater finished for awhile now but just got around to taking pictures.
Do you see a theme developing here? :)
Anyway, despite the less-than-enthusiastic look in the picture, my daughter loves this shrug and wears it a lot.
What I especially love about it is that it's going to fit for a long time. The ribbing has plenty of "give," and we plan to cuff the sleeves when they start to look too short. With all of this in mind, it should last for several years.
This is a paid pattern, but I highly recommend it (and the designer Elena Nodel). For roughly $6, you get a seamless, gorgeous sweater pattern in sizes Newborn to 14 years so you can make it several times over while your daughter grows. I made this in the 8/9 size. It was super-easy to make, and it looks terrific on. You can find it on Ravelry. It's called Silversage.
