Pattern of the Week: Roseate Shrug

The stunning Roseate Shrug blooms with tiny flowers. These baby buds plus the lovely linen/alpaca/Tencel blend yarn are an easy way to bring an added layer of warmth to the chillier spring days. Inspired by the long, flowing garments worn by desert-dwelling people, this elegant wrap is worked in an allover diamond mesh pattern. For day or nighttime wear, it’s all about what you might layer beneath this signature design. Once you’ve completed this elegant wardrobe staple, what else will you be crocheting from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018?
