Estimated completion time: 5-8 hours
This poncho is made from cashmere wool and imitation fox fur. It is great for climates
such as ours (Las Vegas), where it can be quite cool in morning then intermittently warm up
throughout the day. The soft wool is very warm but the loose fabric breathes really well so you
don't get sweaty when it gets warmer. The fur lining also does a great job of keeping the hood
open so your vision is not compromised.
The pattern is included in step two. If you would like to convert this into a cape. Leave the center
front seam open and add a clasp just below the ends of the fur lining.
