Shh! is a sport weight wrap or scarf to cozy up in as you dive into a
good book at the library. Shaped like an elongated diamond, Shh!
features a diamond of garter stitch at its center and sprigs of leafy lace that grow out to its tips. Shh! begins and ends with just one
stitch, so there is no need to cast on or bind off stitches. With its easy garter stitch beginning, simple intuitive lace and garter stitch
accents, this is an addictive project. Other library patrons may
want to ask you about your pretty knit, but please remember to
speak quietly in the library — shh!
