Ravens are masters of the air. In stormy weather I can watch them from my studio as they suddenly rocket into view using the upcurrents around the clifftops to soar and plummet, forming kite-like shapes. I wanted to create a garment that would have the swagger and swing of the birds in flight and so I designed the poncho with its flattering curved and flaring shape to do just that.

The poncho is worked in four pieces and the curved shaping is achieved by working short rows. I wanted the poncho to have a dramatic shape: wide at the base but fitting snugly around the chest and neck.

The poncho is worked in Hebridean 3 Ply with the collar feathers worked in matching 2 Ply.
