On the Edge Poncho Pattern
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
This garment is a prime example of Catherine Lowe's influence. Made in two pieces, it is designed so "one size fits most." Using Catherine Lowe Yarns in four strands of alpaca and two strands of silk ensures that the drape of this casual, but elegant, poncho is dramatic and perfect for a spring or summer cover-up. Charles worked a bind-off join in a contrast color along the top of the sleeves, which is echoed in the edging around the perimeter of the piece.
