Not quite a poncho, not quite a sweater, this hybrid works as both. Easy to pull over your head and slip on, it is perfect knitwear for cooler days.

Worked in a simple geometric shape, this design uses wide ribs that flow into the Basketweave Stitch Pattern of the main body. Short rows shape the shoulders and a 3-needle bind-off joins the front to the back so that seaming is kept to a minimum.

The sample pictured is knit with Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3-Ply, 65% wool, 35% silk, (230 m./252 yds. per 100 g. skein), colour “Burnt Sienna”, size Extra Small/Small. Yarn is held doubled throughout.
