This shrug was fantastically easy and quick to stitch up. The pattern is from The Happy Hooker book called the "Knot Ugly Shrug". I made the simple version (the deluxe version had ruffles on the edges and sleeves.) I decided to make it in a light blue for a soft look (with Red Heart worsted weight yarn). I used a size N hook (I need to find a size L and M hook since Wal-Mart doesn't have those two sizes), and I made it in the large size. It only took me two afternoons and evenings to complete. Mesh is great because it stitches up so quickly. I really like the way this looks; it should be great over a lot of things, and I'll be able to use it on the cruise I'm taking in September!
