Pattern Description:

Summer Days is a fun little girly shrug/bolero, the one that you put on during those chilly early summer mornings and late summer evenings, or during those rainy spells that bring a bit of a chill to the air. Summer Days also makes a great layering piece to wear through the rest of the year.

This little shrug is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows set-in sleeves and shoulder shaping without using short rows. Sleeves are worked at the same time as the rest of the shrug/bolero.

Only the sleeve cuffs are worked using dpn's or circular needles, the rest of the garment is worked flat.

24 sts x 34 rows = 10 cm/4 inches
