Snowflake Poncho - $30

Sundays, January 29th & February 19th, 2-4p

This garment combines two of our favorite things: colorwork and cozy ponchos!  This design is worked from the top down, using short-row shaping across the back of the shoulders.  The traditionally-shaped colorwork yoke gives students the opportunity to customize their piece to match their wardrobe.  After the yoke, increases are continued to shape the body of the poncho, which is knit in a simple eyelet lace pattern.  Knit with squishy, soft BFL wool, this poncho is going to become your favorite thing to wear to keep a chill at bay!
