The American Southwest averages three hundred days of sunshine every year, and the Cadencia Poncho harnesses the warmth and radiance of that Southwestern sun. The mingling vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines catch the eye, and the drop stitches create a swingy, fun fabric. This poncho is worked from side to side and finished with an I-cord edging and fringe.
