Berocco Vernazza + Bonassola Poncho

It feels like spring yarns are rolling in faster than we can find room for them but that didn't stop us from tearing into the new shipment from Berroco and making room for it allllll immediately! 

Vernazza is a lovely linen blend that highlights the best traits of fibers that are great for warmer weather. Colorful viscose wraps around a core of cotton and linen, a technique that gives the yarn a dappled, marled look. This blend has beautiful drape, structure, and breathability. 

We adore the accompanying pattern release from Berocco; the Bonassola poncho is an incredible layering piece that can be worn now thorough early fall. Both the front and back are worked separately, then seamed at shoulders and inside the garter stitch side panels at the sides. The piece also features a basketweave stitch pattern on front and back center panel.

Bonassola is right HERE.
Happy spring!
