Inspired by Crispin apple leaves, this refreshing take on a poncho is here for the apple picking season. The leafy structure of this design paired with a wool and acrylic blend yarn gives this poncho breathability and warmth at the same time. Wear with or without the hood depending on how crisp the weather may be.

Poncho is worked in one piece, and hood is worked in two pieces and sewn up the center.
