The Mountain Hermit Garden Shrug [ Free Knitting Pattern]

Alright Crafties, I'm finally rolling out those pattern freebies again! This one is for my knitters and

comes right on time for the spring gardening season. The Mountain Hermit Garden Shrug is a cozy knit that fits a 50”/127cm bust, with easy instructions to size up or down.

It features wide sleeves and a cable twist down the spine.

For this pattern, I used a 4 weight acrylic yarn and 6mm knitting needles.

As always, if you want to support my content, there is a paid version of this pattern in my shop that includes instructions for a pocket add on, the sleeve cuffs, and a video tutorial.
