Greensleeves from KnitWhits is a quick and easy shrug that makes excellent use of the ombre quality of the Freia Fine Handpaits yarn. The shrug is constructed of a Diamond Cluster Pattern bordered by moss stitch, and 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.
