Lamellar Poncho

Armor inspired poncho.

Roomy fit and elastic stitches between the ribs create a flattering drape for many sizes. The fit/shaping is such that size adjustment will only be needed in length. Piece worked top down in the round so is easily adjusted to longer and shorter lengths.

Written pattern using US knitting terms and abbreviations ~ Glossary and Metric equivalents provided.
