Knitters at the level of Advanced Beginner through Expert will enjoy creating this fashionable, innovative yet classic poncho. The “Knotted Chain” Poncho is a versatile piece for every occasion and is full of gentle elegance making it a wardrobe staple.

The poncho was designed incorporating the new, innovative fashion-forward 3-D “Knotted Chain” giving the garment a fresh, classic look. It is framed by I-cord trim giving it soft edges and a beautiful, supple drape to the neckline. The long lines of the “knotted Chain” are universally flattering for all body types. One size fits most but can be easily modified.

Although this project may look complicated, the pattern includes written, charted and simple step-by-step instruction for all techniques making this a surprisingly fast and easy knit.

Poncho is knit bottom-up in a single rectangular piece seamless with no provisional cast-on, no I-cord, no cable needle, no grafting and no sewing.

Any DK weight fiber with good stitch definition and a beautiful drape will make a classy poncho you will be proud to wear.

Simply sophisticated.
