Cultivation & Offshoot Shrug eBook









By: knitecochic

One gorgeous gradient set, two exciting designs now available together in the Cultivation and Offshoot Shrug eBook!

Cultivation~
Planting is over and the sun is sure to be shining! Cultivation lets the Vitamin D kiss your shoulders as you weed to keep your garden looking beautiful. Whether outside with a garden hose or tucked inside in your knitting corner while you watch God water for you, this halter seamlessly transitions from outside to in. Designed with the summertime heat in mind, this fun, no-finishing-required, top-down tank design features a modest lace detail on the halter, faux side seam details, and simple waist shaping.

Offshoot Shrug~
Sprouting out of Cultivation, Offshoot Shrug blossoms with beautiful arrowhead lace. A little coverage after a few hours of fun hand knitting brings cool stitches to your spring and summer wardrobe. Offshoot Shrug graces your shoulders with your favorite DK weight yarn. Perfect over tank tops, long sleeves, dresses, and even other hand knit tops. This lightweight shrug sets the stage to show off your knitting skill and your sense of fashion.

Constructed top down, seamlessly (except for the trim on the shrug).

The tech edited and test knit patterns are fully written, with the lace written and charted. There are two schematics and a few how-to videos (linked in the eBook), as well.
