Introducing my latest pattern – Late Summer Meadow! I love to wear long shawls, wraps and scarves but having an active life, being a mother and farmer, I often get annoyed at draping fabric getting in my way of things. And so this shawl-take on the poncho was born. Designed to be worn in both styles, the light but surprisingly warm fabric of Sincere Sheep’s naturally dyed Vernal creates the perfect shoulder hugging accessory to carry you through the transition of late summer into early autumn. Worked top down and in the round, the cowl is worked in simple stockinette which flows into a fully textured poncho. The charted poncho section features simple yet eye catching stitch patterns which contribute to an engaging project and, once finished, an honest wow factor!
