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.
