Luxurious Phoebe becomes a gorgeous, ample, cozy poncho in Lyre. A long, wide rectangle—featuring a cool fisherman's rib-and-eyelet motif and a pretty leaf panel repeat—is seamed after blocking to create a neck opening. Throw it on any time of year to keep the chill away! The neck opening has a slight cowl neck effect that we really like.
