The only thing that would make this shrug better is to have a 6 month old baby to model it! Seriously, this pattern was quick and fun to knit. The pattern's description indicated that the shrug is difficult for the baby/toddler to take off which to me is an added benefit.
I decided to use cotton and overall I am pleased with the results. I found the yardage in the pattern to be extremely generous and I did not use nearly as much as they indicated.
So if you have a baby girl or know of someone who is going to have a baby girl, give this pattern a whirl (pun intended, of course!).
