Side Hustle DK by Shanalines Designs | Designed in collaboration with Lauren from agirlandherwool, this squishy DK weight wrap uses 3 colors of yarn. 2 colors are used to create alternating stripes of garter and stockinette stitch. Color 3 features garter stitch short row sections wedged into the mix as an accent color—the SIDE HUSTLE counterpoint to the regular stripes, if you will. Use temporary closures to change the style into a poncho.
