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.
