Veronika

$8.00 USD

Veronika is light and swingy, not at all fitted yet with snug cuffs that make her easier to wear than a poncho. She’s easy to throw-on over almost any outfit, so you’ll find yourself reaching for her again and again. The front and back curves are created using short rows, using the YO method of short row shaping. After the curves, everything is joined, and the pattern is seamless and circular all the way up.
