My Cupcake

a raglan knit with a twist


$6.00

 

My Cupcake poncho is a fun alternative to a cardigan. Sweet and comfy, it is a great sweater for breezy weather. This pattern is knit from the top down. The bell shape is created by using a playful twist on the raglan yoke. The extra-wide collar makes the poncho easy to pull on and off and the picot edging is so sweet it looks like frosting on a cupcake.
