At home on the beach Ilga Leja's Mermaid can be seen sporting among the waves. When a light cover up is needed, wear this beautiful beach poncho. The intriguing stitch pattern reflects the fluid transparency of Mermaid's watery home.
Worked in two identical rectangles which are then sewn together to create the poncho, this is a satisfying and quick to accomplish knit.
From beach to patio, the Mermaid can transform into evening wear. Here the laced seam is worn behind the shoulder, giving the poncho a different shape and style. Modeled in Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3 Ply.
