This intermediate level project can be worked in your choice of hemp or linen yarn. Three strands of yarn are used with a wrapped openwork stitch to create a unique yoke, which tops a simple, single strand, shift-style main body. It is all finished with a repeat of the yoke stitch pattern at the bottom edge, worked in one strand . Only basic lace skills are required.

Yarns like hemp and linen are great for summer knits and knitting, but have very different properties compared to yarns made out of wool and other fibres. Please visit the provided link to get more information on this pattern and working with these types of yarns.
