• Stylish off the shoulder mini poncho | Fashion

     


    This stylish pullover off-the-shoulder poncho shawl is very comfy and airy. Perfect to wear with a tank underneath or over a summer dress. Of course, you can wear it in the colder months as well with a long-sleeved shirt or sweater.

    Model's are wearing Red Heart® Boutique Unforgettable™ Yarn in the color echo in size medium. The colors are amazing in this soft roving yarn.


    I used the Red Heart® pattern called Fire and Ice Poncho, which you can download for free by clicking here.

    This pattern is pretty easy to work up but if you have any questions or need help please feel free to reach out to me.
