A fun and quick top-down shrug is a perfect layering piece for transitional weather - give those fun summer dresses a chance for cooler weather, or just keep the air conditioned chill off in warmer climates.
Dew Point is knit seamlessly from the back neck down in lightweight yarn with a pretty lace border all the way around. It uses a small amount of yarn and is great for showing off those luxury yarns that are just too pretty for socks.
