Tips & Techniques, Projects & Patterns
The Ponchini is the new shawl: a versatile garment with so many design possibilities. This is your chance to cast on one with the help of the Ponchini Master himself, Steven, as he guides you through your first Ponchini or your own design idea. Experience the magic of mixology, taking a variety of yarns from different brands, weights, and fiber contents to create a magical and unique wrap. Use one of the patterns from Ponchini Vol. 1 and learn its structure, seaming, and wearability. Steven will teach you his favorite tips and tricks as he guides you through your favorite Ponchini, whether it’s your first or your 10th.
