Calendar Girl

one hundred forty nine (Calendar Girl)

I’ve had this little shrug design bouncing around in my head for a while. At Lettuce Knit we carry a lot of yarns that are gorgeous, but I often hear people say that a sweaters worth is outside of their price range. I wanted to make something that used a higher end yarn without breaking the bank. When we got the Sweet Georgia Worsted in the shop I knew I had the perfect combo. The handdyed colourways, combined with the high twist make a truly amazing fabric.

Perfect for over air-conditioned offices, cool mornings or breezy nights, this little shrug is a great addition to any wardrobe. The eyelet pattern transitions easily from season to season, no matter your climate. Its small size means that it is easily worked up in only a few balls of your favourite worsted hand dyed yarn. Available in sizes 32-36 (36-40, 40-44, 44-48, 48-52).
