Ribbed Shrug

Ribbed Shrugfrom Better Homes and Gardens March 2010 (I think this pattern is from a Checkheton pattern book)
wool from Ireland: Kerry Woollen Mills Aran Wool
needles: 6mm and 7mm
must work on my increase stitches....with larger needles they make it look like holes...at least the holes are evenly spaced, so perhaps I can call it a design feature?
I bought this wool in Ireland, love the colour, and it is so warm!

Hi Nicole, great job! I'm currently in the middle of knitting this shrug & am having trouble where you change to the circular needles. I've searched for the pattern elsewhere but to no avail. Can you please help me? Thankyou in advance...Sarah
