A little feminine, a little sexy, just enough flirt. Button it and wear over one shoulder or both or just wrap it around your neck to keep the chill out.

Worked from the top down with garter stitch accents between the increase sections, this is a quick knit to make as a gift or for yourself.

Finished Size: approximately 33” at neck edge x 12 ½ “ deep. Will vary with cast on used and gauge achieved.

Yarn: Worsted weight, 550 yds. Sample made with Berroco Modern Cotton, 60% cotton/40% rayon, 209 yds 191m / 3.5 oz 100g 2 ½ skeins color #1654 Bluebird

Needles: Size US 7/4.5mm x 29” circular needle

Gauge: Gauge 22 sts in 4” unstretched. Gauge is not critical but may change yarn requirements. You do want a soft drape so looser is better than tightly knit. Cast-on edge will stretch. Stretch will vary with type of cast-on used. I used a stretchy Old Norwegian cast-on for my sample.

Thanks so much to my test knitters!
