This elegant, ethereal poncho will be one of your go-to garments through all the seasons … whether you need just a bit of coverage for air-conditioned summer dinners or a glamorous cover-up for a winter’s concert outing, this poncho is as much fun to knit as it is to wear!

Shown here in 100% cashmere (altho any fingering weight, natural fiber would work equally well), this lace poncho is a unique accessory that will get you rave reviews. The directions are charted AND round-by-round for your knitting pleasure.

You’ll need MC - 370 yards; CC - 200 yards of light-fingering weight yarn (preferably a natural fiber with a slight halo). Sample used Spring Gate Farm’s 100% cashmere.
