Summer Snows Shrug
by Reywa Fibers
At altitudes ranging from 12,000-16,000 feet above sea level, the sun’s rays are strong. On summer blue sky days, the heat from the sun’s rays can seem unbearable, but when it’s cloudy, look out! You’ll be glad you packed your Summer Snows Shrug. No matter your location, mountain or valley, this boho chic shrug will keep you warm, relaxed, and ready for anything. The simple knit-purl ribbing makes it a great pattern for a knitting retreat with friends (when most of your attention is on the yakity yak) or for a beginner who wants the challenge of a bigger project.
