This little “popover” style poncho makes a great piece to transition from Fall, right through the cold Winter months and into Spring. Pointed front and back hems and slipped center stitches flatter the figure, while side openings and a comfy cowl neck add creature comforts.

Front and back are worked separately, bottom-up, and grafted at the shoulders. Cowl stitches are picked up and worked in the round. Side ribbing is worked by picking up stitches then decorative buttons are sewn into place and secured after blocking.
