Like a warm embrace, this shaped cape hugs your shoulders and is then gently shaped down past your waist to drape you in wooly warmth.
It’s knit from the top-down on size 11 needles, making this poncho a surprisingly quick knit.
Pretty floral panels that mirror each other embellish the fronts of the cape. Wide ribbed button bands allow you to showcase bold, beautiful buttons (like the woven leather shank ones shown here) and keep the chill out.
The versatile ribbed collar can be worn slightly down as shown, buttoned up to the neck, or buttoned all the way up and worn as a turtleneck.
The wide Garter stitch bottom border adds a simple finishing touch. This is a beautiful, timeless layer to knit and wear this season.
