"Subtle, graphic punch."
Acacia is a wonderfully clever, structured poncho. Combining bold, horizontal color-blocking with vertical panels of stockinette and reverse stockinette, this piece has subtle, yet graphic punch. One side has a set-in sleeve, while the other is mostly left open—a simple tack shapes a loose armhole.
Acacia was designed by Shellie Anderson in collaboration with Shibui Knits, using fingering-weight Koan.
