#163 Cable Love Cowl Neck Poncho
Here’s an irresistible combination of cables knit in a sumptuous alpaca-blend yarn to create a key piece for your winter wardrobe! Lots and lots of interesting cable panels run up the front and back sections of this poncho. The poncho is made up of 4 pieces – to keep the knitting manageable and create a slight angled effect for the hemline.
After the four pieces are seamed, a generous cowl is picked up from the shaped neckline. The cowl is cabled all around to echo the design of the body. Shown with the optional belt, if you prefer a poncho that nips in at the waist. You may choose to customize by sewing up the sides halfway, adding decorative buttons along the seed stitch side borders, adding snaps inside to pull in near the waist, or just wearing it free and loose. No matter what - this piece is truly a sophisticated, statement-making addition to your wardrobe!
(the first 2 photos show a seed st belt. I didn’t like how it curled in, so a ribbed belt as shown in the next 2 photos is what is included in the pattern)
