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!

 

If you love this Coffee & Cream Poncho Pattern… Make sure to add it to your Ravelry favorites!!  Click Here…

Now also available in PDF Format!!! $3.99


If you are wondering what the Chic Sheep Designer Blog Tour is all about… Red Heart Yarns and Marly Bird came up with a fun idea of having 18 of your favorite designers come up with beautiful free patterns using Chic Sheep Yarn between August 6th and September 15th… Each designer came up with a lovely free pattern just for you … To see the past patterns and see the upcoming schedule for the Chic Sheep Designer Blog Tour… Click Here!!!!
