Gale for two

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

Ponchos are such a hit lately! We love Alicia Plummer’s Gale so much, and we were thrilled to see she made a Mini Gale for little ones.

Both ponchos use the same construction- a boxy body with sloped shaped shoulders. A stunning turtleneck is the icing on the cake for this trendy poncho/pullover. The sides feature buttoned “armholes”- a neat construction choice for a no fuss wardrobe piece.

The ponchos are knit using Plymouth Homestead– a great aran weight choice for the perfect drape. Homestead is 2-ply wool that comes in solid and natural heathers. We love it because it has incredible yardage (191 yards per 100 grams skein) as well as being warm enough to chase the early spring chill.
