THE STITCHES OF MY LIFE DESIGNS
Tollgate from Stitches of my Life Designs is a beauty! This densely cabled poncho was designed with the idea that it can be worn instead of a jacket if the weather is slightly cool, or as an additional layer when it turns colder. It’s the perfect accessory for a walk on a cool, autumn day. The Tollgate Cable Pattern contains short rows for shaping purposes. If you want to challenge yourself and try working your cables without a cable needle this is the perfect pattern to try!
