Sunny Colors Poncho



A good day I wish to you wherever you are, friends! :)

It's spring, the sun is shining, the green grass covers the terrain in front of my home and trees are blooming all around. This inspired me to make this design, a poncho that has all spring colors; green, blue, yellow and white of course, to wear whenever it feels chilly be it day or night.


It's simple and could be knitted to fit any figure. Have a nice knitting day!
