Rabbit in a hat

My sweet lil 3 year old Laney loves magic, in fact she can't actually say magic so I'm forever hearing her say "maggot, maggot... taa daa" .. so I had to make her something special for her magic tricks.

Ok, so I've just spotted a piccie of a crochet-along (CAL) that is starting in February and wow, it's amazeballs! 
Not only is it stunning but it's for a wrap AND it combines a beautiful mix of crochet and embroidery/cross stitch AND has helpful videos along the way so you won't get stuck.

Shruggy show off and some tips to make it.

I've just sewn in the ends for this shrug, my last finish for 2016.   A shrug for my Laney ...but she refuses to model it, not that I blame her as it is summer here!
I'm also adding a couple of tips on how to make this shrug as I found the pattern to be slightly confusing and wanted to help out others with these two handy tips.
