Valley Yarns #141 Playful Poncho PDF
The name says it all, and we especially love the woven motif on the front of Valley Yarns Playful Poncho, kind of a meta piece. Designed by Elisabeth Hill, it is remarkably simple to weave and construct, with complete instructions and diagrams for sewing the poncho and overlay. Add some woven fashion to your outdoor wardrobe!
