Luca, a light weight poncho that is delightfully easy to knit, though which ever way you turn it, you get a different look in color, texture and even shape. Very cool….
First you knit a scarf (so you actually get two patterns in one here), then you join the ends and start knitting in the round to create your poncho. A decreased tip and big side slit makes for an interesting detail and allows for many sizes to fit, when knitted to gauge.
The pattern is written and offers a schematic.
