Like many women I tend to feel cold … practically always except in high summer. That’s why I wanted a sort of shoulder warmer or poncho to keep me warm at work.

I chose a light-weight merino yarn in different grey tones that - colors that are compatible with an office environment.

The piece is knitted flat - starting with a provisional cast on and knitted sideways with a combination of short row ribs and a lace pattern to make it interesting, and it is finished with Kitchener stitch.

Because of the short rows, this piece is wider at the bottom than at the top - so that it fits nicely around your shoulders. You can wear it either as a cowl or as a shoulder warmer / poncho.
