The shape for this design was inspired by a poncho. I
like the look of ponchos, but feel a little constricted by
them. Hoptree Cardi features a poncho-esque shape,
with sleeves and an open front, offering more freedom
of movement. Worked up in beautiful semi-solid sock
yarn, this will become a very useful piece for your Spring-
Summer-Fall wardrobe.
