Tropical Sherbet will remind of ocean breeze, warm sun under the palm trees and a glass of frozen sherbet by your side. This knitting pattern colors of cool green, light orange and clean white make the outfit summery, fun and happy looking.
The outfit consists of a sleeveless dress and a wraparound shrug. This pattern can be knitted in different color and it will change it's look together with your color changes.
The sleeveless dress is worked flat and straight in a stockinet stitch with a few rows of garter stitch trim. The shrug is worked in moss stitch and has an I-cord trim that begins as a neckline trim and extends to become a tie closure.
