Kate Middleton's Angora Shrug/Bolero Knitting Pattern

Today my friend Sara modeled Kate Middleton's wedding shrug  and she looked so lovely in it! Thank you so much! I have sold the pattern to Erin in Australia and she promised me a picture of the bride and the bridesmaids wearing the shrugs! I can't wait to see it!

Kate Middleton's Angora Wedding Shrug/Bolero: HERE IS THE PATTERN!

Thank you so much for all your patience! 
I always try to write my patterns as precise as possible and then don't be surprised that this is another long one. But only because I really try to cover every hurdle. You will find the exact row for every size where for example the button hole has to be. 
Not much measuring here. I believe in counting rows. There is just no way around it.

Done! The Angora Bolero of Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding

It is getting warmer (finally!) here in Wisconsin and it seems strange to work with such warm and fuzzy material. The outcome is stunning though! The pattern is easy to follow and seven sizes cover many body shapes.
For buttons I chose sparkly rhinestone buttons because they really make the look complete. The angora is super fluffy and the piece looks like a cloud. I wonder if it will ever be worn to a wedding.
The pattern should be available by the end of this week. With school being over and the kids around I don't get as much done as I had hoped. Sorry to everybody who is waiting patiently for the pattern to arrive!
