My niece's birthday is coming up so I designed an outfit for her including this shrug and a tank dress to wear underneath (fabrics for dress shown with shrug in progress). The yarn is a cotton yarn in cream with flecks of pastel pinks and purples. I got it at Walmart of all places. I think it is meant to be used to knit dishcloths
etc but it feels really soft so I decided to use it for this shrug.
