This pattern will be re-released in Michelle’s soon to be published book “The Best of Knit Purl Hunter - 25 Inspiring Designs by Michelle Hunter” available in April 2017!
The fabric has an interesting design with superior drape. Best of all, the simple construction makes it a garment that is flattering on EVERYONE! Knitters of all shapes and sizes modeled the poncho and were thrilled with the flattering silhouette. Most ponchos are available in the dreaded “one size fits all”, but I have two sizes to please everyone. Whether you are new to garments or an experienced veteran, 14 Carat will bring you new skills as well as a stylish garment. No previous garment experience is necessary - it’s the perfect first step to wearable knitting!
14 Carat is knit with Cobasi fingering yarn making it a lightweight top appropriate for chilly spring evenings or overly air conditioned restaurants in the summer. Cobasi is available in solid, tonal and multi-colors that will all showcase the design.
