Summer Sunset Shrug
This quick to knit summer shrug is great for beginners and advanced knitters alike. It's knit with 2 strands of Erika Knight Studio Linen held together on big needles allowing for a lacy and subtle color change throughout. Alternately, you can choose a single color if you prefer.
