This project really has it all: easy tv-knitting stitch patterning and shaping; addictive colour striping; sockyarn stash-busting opportunities… and the resulting shrug is the perfect office “blanket.” Throw it on to feel instantly cozy and comfy in any air conditioned or draughty environment.

Whiskey Spring is worked by holding 2 strands of fingering weight yarn together, causing a marled faded effect between the stripes.
