cotton bolero shrug

A shrug knit in organic bumpy cotton started and stopped over time mostly because it is such a simple knit that it is a bit boring. One could knit it with their eyes closed. In fact, I did knit it with my eyes closed a few weeks ago when I had a scratched cornea (my fourth).

What this is: a simple garter stitch rectangle. I casted on 100 stitches on size 8 needles knitted to 24" folded it and then sew up halfway on the sides to leave space for the arms. I used a marbled cotton yarn from Fibre Craft Studio.

I think this would make a fun first, second or third project or one for knitting in the car or when you are too tired or blind to knit anything else.

maybe you could stitch it with your eyes closed but some of us couldn't manage that handiwork even with our eyes open. great shrug and perfect for fall it looks nice with your shirt.
