  • hello from france!
    one video for this nice shrug?

  • what cast on would you recommend and my aio loom with extenders is only 106 pegs so I can’t do the 114 cast on for small.

  • What cast on method should be used?

    Thanks.

  • I did the regular ewrap (but then I tightened it when I was done with the project).

  • can you make a video
