Kirsche is an oversized poncho that is worked from the bottom front hem around the shoulders and then down to the back bottom hem. The sides are held together by two buttons that are placed in the ribbing.

Kirsche can be worn with or without the matching cowl. Instructions for both patterns are included in this design. This design goes well with leggings or jeans, just throw it on over anything, when you’re headed out on a chilly autumn day.

The recommended yarn is Merino DK from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise. The model shown is worked in the colorway “Dunkle Kirsche”.

Kirsche ist ein übergroßer Poncho, der in einem Stück vom vorderen Saum über die Schulter bis zum hinterem Saum gestrickt wird. Die Seiten werden durch zwei Knöpfe zusammen gehalten, die am Rippenmuster angebracht werden.

Dieser Poncho kann entweder mit oder ohne den passenden Loopschal getragen werden. Dieses Strickstück passt gut zu Jeans oder Leggings. Man kann ihn einfach an einem kühlen Tag über den Kopf ziehen.

Das eingesetzte Garn ist Merino DK von Rohrspatz & Wollmeise in der Farbe “Dunkle Kirsche”.
