Shawls? Pshaw! It’s poncho time!

While it’s easy to get lost in the plethora of shawls available on the market, sometimes you can have too many. However, as ponchos are generally bigger projects, we have fewer of them. So, why not transform a shawl into a poncho, work up this useful and fun garment for yourself, a friend or just for the heck of it. Undoubtedly, you’ll see that this is a fun way to accessorize your going-out wardrobe. Lets see beautiful ponchos made from well-known shawl patterns.
