Knitted Simple Shrug

I knitted the Simple Shrug pattern available for free on the Caron yarn website. I used 4 skeins of Caron Simply Soft worsted weight yarn in Driftwood. The yarn is very soft and warm. It's hard to find a pattern that looks good in variegated yarn, so I'm glad I finally got to use this yarn I've had stashed for a while.

I made the small and the only alteration I made was increasing the back width from 19" to 19.5" because I have broad shoulders.

I’m pretty happy with this shrug but there is something a bit off about it. Maybe the sleeves are too baggy? Or maybe they’re too short. I didn’t check my gauge and I suspect I may have increased every 4 rows instead of every 5 rows by accident.
