indigo blue Cindy

just finished and posted for sale on etsy: the Cindy poncho– now in deep indigo blue wool. the more you wear it, the better it gets, like a pair of jeans.

the bumpy texture is created by yarn over increases and left/right slanting decreases. lightly felted, thick and cuddly but not too bulky. one size fits many 40″ long from v-neck to the point, 23″ drop across the back un-stretched. stretchy.
