STUDENT WORK: Rita’s Shrug

by Kate Preston

Look at this gorgeous shrug Rita knitted over the summer.  Everything about it is perfect – from her seed stitch border to her yarn choice.  Which, by the way, is Cascade’s Eco Duo – a blend of undyed baby alpaca and merino wool fibers.  Rita began taking classes earlier this year and has been knitting cowls, hats and hand warmers.

With the cool weather arriving, I bet the shrug will be one of her favorite accessories.  Thank you Rita for allowing me to share your beautiful work!  -k.
