Folks loved the Intracoastal Sunset so we took it north to Newport and designed the Newport Clambake Poncho featuring a set of stripes, on the front and back, to show off your favorite spreckly yarn against a field of tonal. Have fun with it, make it your own, maybe try a few different colors.

A little excerpt from the book Cozy Coastal Knits about it….
In my travels from shop to shop along the coast, sometimes a particular hand-dyed yarn will simply jump off the shelf at me to bring back a flood of aquatic memories. This was the case the first time I laid eyes upon the deep tonal blues in Cozy Color Works Navy and Deep Sea Blue. Although only a short bike ride from the fabled sailing waters of Long Island Sound made famous by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, these colors took me further north into colder Gilded Age–steeped waters in Narragansett Bay, to a little cove we frequent just outside Newport.
