Primavera (i.e., "Spring" in Portuguese). That elusive time of year when your nose is constantly running, you kind of itch all over and you begin to live. You start spending more time outdoors, you relish the sun and babies begin to show those wonderful baby rolls. But that doesn't mean that you no longer need some warmth. This is where this cute shrug comes into play. Designed to be crocheted in cotton, it is simple but cute, adding just that extra-layer (much needed during Spring or even during Summer/Autumn). So, grab your hook and yarn and go!
