I'm excited to release the second pattern in the Lace Wear Volume Two collection.

Portofino is an elegant poncho which can also be worn as a shawl. Two beautiful lace patterns are worked on the bias in two different colours (or work it all in one colour if preferred). I used Lang Merino 200 in colours 319 and 347. I will have this yarn at Yarndale next week. If you would like to order some, do e-mail me on The yarn will be available in the YarnAddict Shop after Yarndale.

If you've already purchased the Lace Wear Volume Two collection, you will have received an e-mail enabling you to download this pattern. If you purchase the collection now, you will receive the already published patterns (Caldera and Portofino) and you will receive the remaining patterns as soon as they're published. 

The Lace Wear Volume Two collection is currently £9 (plus your local VAT rate if you live in the EU) and the price will increase when the next design is released (hopefully in October).

Portofino is also available as a single pattern and is  25% off until 23 September 2016. No coupon code needed.

Portofino is worked in one piece with two halves. Buttons are added to enable the poncho to be converted into a shawl. Alternatively, if you only wish to wear it as a poncho, you can seam it instead.

The poncho can be worn with buttons at the side or in the centre front. Portofino comes in two sizes and the largest size is modelled on Emily who is tall and slim but fits me equally well (I'm tall and plus size). For petite people, I recommend the smaller size.

Although I'm not looking forward to colder weather because I love summer, I am looking forward to being able to wear this. It's so soft, cozy and big. I wore it briefly this morning and it will definitely become an autumn favourite!
