This pretty, warm-weather shrug begins with a provisional cast on and the lace pattern is worked as a rectangle. The waste yarn is removed from the provisional cast on and some stitches are cast on at the underarms. The trim is then worked in the round for a few inches. For a stretchy and fun edge, the trim is bound off with some picots! No seaming is required to make this piece.

As crafters, each time we purchase a yarn, we are voting with our dollars to support the growth or destruction of the earth. By choosing yarns that support organic farming and processing, that are not cruel to the animals or the people who are involved in its creation, that use low-impact or no dyes, or have a low carbon footprint we are helping to reduce the amount of damage done to the earth through the processing of yarn. With each eco-friendly yarn purchase, we're encouraging yarn manufacturers to continue producing yarns in this manner, and we continue to help our earth. Caterpillar Knits is here to supply pattern support to yarns which fit into the descriptions above and to help spread truthful information about the processing of the chosen yarns.
