Cotton Gauze Shell

BY ELANN

What could be simpler to knit and easier to to wear than a loose-fitting shell?  The Cotton Gauze shell is a simple rectangle, with a relaxed fit, a square neck, and drop shoulders for cool comfort. Its chevron garter stitch pattern is easy to memorize and means no finishing – graceful garter chevrons provide a natural finish at the hem and neckline and ensure that neck and armhole edges do not curl.
