The Neapolitan Scratch N Sniff poncho is a lovely, comfy crochet poncho that will make you feel beautiful and cozy. I made this poncho at my local knit and crochet group, and several of the wonderful ladies there modeled the finished poncho for me. Every one of them commented on how soft it was, the Red Heart Hygge yarn is just wonderful. My friend Rachel (one of my stunning models) named this poncho because it looks like a scratch n sniff sticker for Neapolitan ice cream. I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as my friends and I do!
