    • Hi Carmen, the cat shrug is great – I totally agree! If you click on the image, it should take you to the original maker. You can ask them if the pattern is available, I’m sorry I do no know. Good luck!

  4. Hi Joanne,

    I just found your kind note. I really made it up as I went. I knitted from sleeve to sleeve starting with a k2 p2 rib. You can make the sleeves as long as you like. Then I did a lace pattern until it looked long enough to go across her shoulders and ended with the ribbing for other sleeve. I knitted it flat then seamed the ribs but you could do it in the round. After it was seamed I crocheted around the opening a few times to form the collar and add length to the back. I had not been knitting very long so it is really kind of hit or miss!
    I appreciate so much all your kind words.

    Thank you,
    Beth H
