“Clearwater” is a knitted cowl that flows into a poncho with short row lace edging and a knitted picot cast off. This was made during a road trip from MA to FL! My test knitter thinks this is a terrific TV watching knitting project.

The poncho starts at the neck on a 24” circular then switches to a 40” circular to help accomodate all the stitches. You can use the 24” throughout the project though.

The finished measurements are as follows:
Cowl is 22” around neck with 20” in height
Poncho length = 20” (not including cowl), wingspan is 50”

I am looking forward to seeing your fantastic creations! xo
