It's a quick garment to make and perfect to throw over your shoulders on chilly summer evenings, or even in the office or while crafting at home all year round. If you prefer you could just leave it as a rectangle and wear it as a shawl. The yarn is the beautiful, warm and light Artesano Alpaca 4ply which is perfect for crochet and soft and warm.
The stitch pattern is very simple and will make a quick piece for experienced crocheters and be easy to work for new crocheters. Leni made the sample for me and she did a great job.
The magazine sample actually arrived back to me today. I wish I was a few sizes smaller so I could wear it.
Look out for more crochet designs from me in Simply Crochet and in other crochet magazines later this year.
