Ash­down For­est

The Knitter - - Ashdown Forest -

THIS OPEN FRONTED pon­cho drapes around the shoul­ders beau­ti­fully to of­fer cosy com­fort. It can also be worn with one front pinned to the op­po­site shoul­der, as in our pho­to­graphs. Sarah Hatton’s de­sign fea­tures mock ca­bles, clus­ter stitches and moss stitch. The fab­ric feels won­der­fully warm, thanks to the use of an aran-weight wool from West York­shire Spin­ners. The Croft Shet­land Colours is a pure Shet­land Is­land wool, which is avail­able in 12 warm shades.
