Lady at the Airport was inspired by the requests of two lovely neighbors! One of them had seen an elegant poncho worn by a lady passing her in the terminal at the airport. Thanks to you both for your support and encouragement with getting this design on the books!

This poncho is an innovative piece that is worked in two colors. It is knitted from the bottom up from the hem in one piece. The stitches for the cowl neck or optional crew neck are picked up around the neck edge after the body has been completed.

The “sleeves” fall just below the elbows, which helps to show off a lady’s figure, giving this poncho a very flattering look.

These instructions are easy to follow and require intermediate knitting skills such as short rows, grafting, and decreasing on both sides of the fabric.

Approximate Bust Circumference 30-34 (36-40, 42-46) inches / 76-86.5 (91.5-101.5, 106.5-117) cm

22 stitches x 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in stockinette stitch on size US 6 (4.0 mm) needles; measured on a washed and blocked fat swatch. You are advised to ensure that both your stitch and row gauges are accurate.

„Lady at the Airport“ wurde durch die Bitte von zwei großartigen Nachbarinnen inspiriert! Eine von ihnen hatte eine Frau im vorbeigehen an einem Flughafenterminal beobachtet, die einen sehr modischen Poncho trug. Vielen lieben Dank an Euch beide für die Unterstützung und die Ermutigung zu diesem Design!

Dieser Poncho ist ein innovatives Kleidungsstück, das in zwei Farben von unten nach oben, an einem Stück gestrickt wird. Die Maschen des Wasserfallkragen (Cowl Neck) oder Rundhalsausschnitts werden nach Fertigung des Körpers um den Halsausschnitt aufgenommen.
Die „Ärmel“ fallen leicht unterhalb den Ellbogen, was dieser Poncho sehr reizvoll macht, weil die Figur der Frau dadurch elegant betont wird.

Diese Anleitung ist einfach und erfordert mittlere Strickkenntnissen wie zum Beispiel verkürzte Reihen, den Maschenstich und die Abnahmen auf beiden Seiten der Arbeit.
