When I think of Frida Kahlo, the first words that come to mind are courage and creativity. She was an incredibly courageous woman, fighting through pain and challenges all her life, first battling polio as a child, and later recovering from a tragic bus accident. She also had the courage of her convictions and never wavered from her truth, as reflected in her art.

The colorways of this yarn were developed by the manufacturer, inspired by the fabulous paintings of Frida Kahlo. The sections of this poncho pattern were named after some of her paintings, and my admiration for her work has grown.
