The Design


The yarn used in this project has been discontinued and is no longer in stock.

Every so often a project comes along that has all of our staff sounding like the seagulls in 'Finding Nemo'"Mine, mine, mine!" Meet the Diagonal Lace Poncho in Shibui's Raina swoon-worthy mercerized cotton with a chainette construction and a fantastic sheen. Crisp in the hand while knitting, Rain softens beautifully when blocked. A totally suitable project for a lace beginner, our pattern comes with charts, photography and tutorials on how to 'read' your knitting.

The result is a breezy summer-weight poncho with flattering lines of eyelet that’s a truly satisfying knit. Perfect over an easy summer frock or jeans and a tee. You too can say, "Mine, mine, mine!"
