Nancy shrug – genuine whip up

Nancy shrug

 Just a quickie – take a wool jumper, use various bits to

  • create collar and cuffs for an updated argyle jumper
  • and for pudding, refashion the leftover body and stumpy sleeves into the Nancy shrug!

I had to improvise with rubber bands from kitchen draw to create perfect puff for sleeves, but you can use elastic. Ideal for an unexpectedly overcast day, and all done by hand. Simples. Tutorial and cutting plan to follow.

      Hi Julia

      Haven’t forgotten the shrug tutorial – I’ve got it marked down to do on the weekend. Pics to follow.

      I hope you’ll find it easy!

  2. Oh goody, I was hoping for a tutorial for the shrug. Curious as to how you finished the edges. I’ve got a BUNCH of sweaters and not sure how to cut them up w/o them fraying.

About me


I started this blog to help me Get Things Done: sewing and knitting mostly.
But now I have a daughter! So I continue to daydream in enormous detail about what I'd like to make, but squeeze the 'doing' into precious naptimes and evenings.

Can I keep it up? Time will tell!
