What s new: I added instructions for a sleeve-cuff version of the madagascar poNCHo.

You will receive both instructions.

A wonderfully warming poncho with a comfy loose turtle neck. It can be worn comfortably any time and for any occasion.
The poncho is worked top down, starting with a long collar, continues with some short rows for neck shaping and double M1L / M1R increases for shoulder shaping, continues with single increases and flys.
It is worked seamlessly and fitting for any size.
I love the simplicity of its geometric stripe pattern.
