Ponchetta Yarn Ideas

Posted by on Jan 31, 2017 in Blog | No Comments

I released my pattern Ponchetta just about 1 year ago! This is one of my personal favorite designs and it was a design I had in my head for quite a while before it finally all came together last year. I love layering pieces, so this kind of design is the type of piece I could wear practically everyday. A question I often get is about different yarn options that would work well for it – yarns that would work for it gauge-wise and also work in terms of fabric drape. So I’ve decided to do this blog post that highlighted a few yarn options for it:
