This poncho is made of 4 symmetrical triangles with a subtle purl/knit design that creates the allusion of mountains. It is very easy to knit the poncho as stockinette without knitting the purl/knit mountain design.

The design begins with a Provisional Cast On to knit the neck ribbing. The pattern includes alternate instructions for those that do not want to use a Provisional Cast On. From the neck ribbing the poncho is worked top down and ends with a three inch wide ribbing at the bottom.

If you don’t like charts the design can be knit totally without using the charts.
