A beautiful garment for a little girl that encourages the imagination, Vanessa Butterfly Poncho features colorful wings at the back and a small contrast color pocket on the front. Worked top down with medium weight yarn, the pattern includes instructions for making the poncho in three sizes, utilizes intarsia crochet and requires some seaming. Little sleeve cuffs keep the poncho comfortably in place while your sweet butterfly flits about and pattern directives are included for both hooded and collared versions. Perfect for a lovely walk in the park and for occasions where butterflies are especially needed. =)
