Banks skoncho pattern

Regular price $ 6.00

BANKS, is a skirt but it can also be worn as a poncho, so it’s a “skoncho” really!

I love it when I get multiple ways out of my knitted projects, don’t you? 
Knitted in the round with 4 color changes and a bit of easy stranded knitting, a slightly ruffled bottom edge and an I-cord with big round disk beads to let you adjust the top part. Brilliant!

32”, (33/34, 35/36, 37/38), (39/40, 41/42, 43/44), (45/46, 47/48), 0.5-1.5” positive ease, shown in size 35/36 with 0.5” of ease.

NOTE: I am a loose knitter, you may not be so it is imperative to do a gauge swatch to see which needle size will work for you to get the proper fit. Some test knitters used a size 4 needle to get gauge.
