This week's free pattern is really 3 patterns: Peppercorn Top, Shrug & Purse Set. You can find the pattern here.
The top and purse is made with 100 percent cotton Sugar 'N Cream yarn by the name of Peppercorn. It is a yarn most people use to make dish cloths and scrubbers. I thought it would be interesting to take the yarn out of the kitchen and into your closet.
The top is in a halter style with lace straps and lace covered front.
The shrug (as well as the lace trims) is made with size 10 crochet thread but with a larger than normal crochet hook: Size E. This makes the shrug and lace faster to make and very light in weight.
Here is the detail of the lace used for the shrug and lace trim.
