A small shrug

I am taking a short break from shawl knitting as I want to make myself a shrug, this is the yarn I’m planning on using, its manos del Uruguay silk blend in candyfloss.

I couldn’t find a pattern that was exactly what I want so am writing my own, knitting it top down means I work out all the math for the increases etc in the same way as I would a shawl. The other advantage of top down is no seaming and I’m not the biggest fan of sewing. I spent last night working on the increases math, what stitch patterns to use and swatching, tonight I shall cast on proper, update photos to follow in the next couple of days if all goes well.
