Last year the long shawl was blowing the wind, it was possible to see them on the models, players, politicians, everyone. I call it a shawl for this design, but you can call it a cardigan, a sweater or a poncho. Say what you say to this pattern but you have to admit that it is dazzling.
This is a knitting pattern, but you also need to know some crochet techniques. I can’t say that this pattern is easy, but it can be a challenge for experienced people.
If you have questions about the pattern, I’m waiting for my blog. I will be happy to help you.
