This poncho has a unique top down, modular construction. It combines 2 color brioche with garter stitch and chunky cables for a flattering boxy open shape. I knit mine using Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio Worsted for my foreground (purple) and Republic of Wool DK for my background (green). The sample shown is the Medium size (48”) on a 37” bust. The poncho has a recommended 10-12” of positive ease.
