Garter Hug

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Sometimes you look at a skein of cashmere or special sock yarn and all you can think of is a soft shawl wrapped around your neck. When that feeling struck me, I wanted something simple, but with a wee bit of pizzazz. I futzed around a bit with the basic neck-down garter shawl idea, and came up with this. A cashmere garter hug o' goodness. Yummmmm.


22 sts = 4"/10cm, although gauge is not super important

Sizing / Finished Measurements:
