This “poncho meets cardigan” is a fast and easy knit which will be suitable for many seasons!
This garment is created with a simple but lovely textured lace section and followed by an easy to memorize modified rib. Finish up with a fun and beautiful macrame fringe!

The lace pattern is presented in both charted and written formats. Please note that some single crochet is required to finish the garment. Instructions for the macrame fringe are included in the pattern.
