This gentle poncho is perfect for those cooler days when all you want is a light, but elegant, cover-up. Easy to work in the round, in an arrangement of Garter Stitch and wrapped stitches, it will drape you with just enough welcome warmth.

In its shorter version, it becomes a shoulder capelet, ready to adorn and shimmer over a simple tank top or summery blouse.

Both versions pictured are knit with Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3-Ply, 65% wool, 35% silk (230 m./252 yds. per 100 g. skein). Poncho colour is “Ivory”; shoulder capelet colour is “Bronze”.
