Putting away the last remains of Summer and transitioning into the first frosty mornings of Fall may get just a wee bit easier with a brand new project on the needles. This is a season for building up warmth one layer at a time and ponchos are the ideal cover up. What makes a poncho such a Fall favorite is the ease of movement, it lacks the restrictive nature of a jacket or coat, simply by having no sleeves. There is plenty of room for layering underneath and it is really as cosy and warm as throwing on a scarf or shawl.
Hot off the needles, our newest design, Oak Wood Poncho, is knit in one rectangular piece featuring an airy lace pattern and trendy boho fringe detail as the finishing touch. From our fabulous Fall line up, we have picked Baby Llama Lino as the yarn of choice, lightweight and bouncy on the needles, with an innovative ribbon-like construction that appears translucent at its core. Look for all ten harvest hues at your lys this month.
