Be prepared for those summer evening breezes with this brilliant design. It’s so much easier than it looks! The openwork stitch effect is created by making lots of yarn forwards then dropping them on the following row; the more yarn forwards, the longer your stitch. The bold, bright shade is a real showstopper and guaranteed moodbooster…so what are you waiting for?
