Lofty poncho pattern
- Lofty, a little lace, easy garter stitches and a wavy welt pattern.
This is another knit kit that offers two patterns in one, as you first create a rectangle, possibly wearing it as a shawl, then you continue to fold your fabric and create a single seam that turns your fabric into a poncho. Magic~
It then can be worn also as a long cowl or doubled up as a cozy cowl keeping your neck warm. You have to love being able to wear your knitting in different ways.
