My daughter is modeling the Hexagon Shrug that I made for myself. I found the pattern here. I used a size M crochet hook, and about 6 1/2 skeins of Caron's Jewel Box yarn in the Lapis color. I crocheted really loosely so it would fit me. It is very drapey, and fits my daughter as well. It worked up really fast, once I got going. It probably took about 5 hours.
When I posted this picture on Facebook, my sister commented "My pretty niece looks like her mother did at that age." So, I found a picture of myself when I was in sixth grade, and compared.
Minus the glasses, I do see the resemblance. What do you think?
