Rigid-heddle Play the Angles Poncho
Deborah Jarchow placed two strips of plain-weave fabric on the diagonal to construct her clever and playful Play the Angles Poncho with the fold-down collar. You don’t need a big loom for this project; the two strips can be woven on a 12” rigid-heddle loom. —Susan
