A delicate cabled cowl neck crochet poncho pattern, inspired by Alpine Pine Trees, this poncho is practical, wearable but pretty too. Not too chunky, but still warm and cosy, this can be used as the nights get colder, thrown on for the early morning school run or snuggled up on in on the sofa on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Skill Level & Special Stitches
