Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “A scaled-down poncho abstracted itself into a loose-fitting shrug. A mesh base forms a simple background for appliqued crocheted motifs. Tone-on-tone four-leaf clovers decorate the front edges, hinting at the softly colored bouquet on the back. Ties at the front hem are a versatile closure.”
