Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Did you know you could create a beautifully draping poncho with just two rectangular panels? Rebecca Dagmar’s Good Vibrations Throwover is a dreamy light layer for summer with the most straightforward construction. It’s decidedly modern but with a distinct 1970s flavour, and the pretty shell stitch pattern – inspired by soundwaves – is highlighted with eyelet details at the sleeve edges.
Crocheted in our eco-friendly Easy-Wash Amble yarn blend of Merino wool, alpaca and recycled nylon makes this a highly wearable design for easy living.
