Coffee and Cream Poncho… Free Crochet Pattern!

Coffee and Cream Poncho… Free Crochet Pattern!

Coffee & Cream Poncho

The Coffee & Cream Poncho was a special project I decided to design when Red Heart Yarns and my dear friend Marly Bird asked me to join the Chic Sheep Designer Blog Tour!  Red Heart Yarns provided me with the fabulous Chic Sheep 100% Merino Wool Yarn and I have to say… I LOVE THIS YARN!!!! Marly Bird worked endlessly to have a very special wool yarn line for all of us avid crocheters to use!  It is soft, squishy and very easy to work with… This fantastic yarn comes in 24 scrumptious colors and will be on my list for many of my upcoming projects!
