Sontags, also known as heartwarmers, are really convenient garments. They keep your chest and back warm whilst leaving your arms free to do chores. They're not bulky and they don't fall off easily like shawls do.
|I added the ruffly gray trim and tassels on the ties afterwards!|
Most back in the day were knitted; I crocheted mine because I can only knit square things. I have posted the crocheting pattern here It's a little large for me, I think, but it's certainly warm and cozy!
