Freia Fine Handpaints Greensleeves PDF
Greensleeves from KnitWhits is a quick and easy shrug that makes excellent use of the ombré quality of the Freia Fine Handpaints yarn. The shrug is made in two halves, knitted sideways from center back to sleeve. Your cast on edge is the center back; keep this in mind when selecting which end of the ball of yarn to start from as that will determine the color of the body and sleeves of the shrug. It is also recommended that you retain about 24–36” of the same color yarn as your cast on to sew the back seam upon completion. Stitch pattern is written out only.
