For my fellow cold-lovers ♥

This cropped, yoked poncho is knit from the top down with a tube neck, a colorwork yoke, and a split and ribbed lower edge.

Skills required
Long-tail cast-on
Stranded colorwork with 3 colors in a round
Picking up stitches (just 4!)

Choose your size based on your around-the-shoulder measurement and the amount of ease you’d like. The sample shown is size M and fits both me (39” bust) and my niece who is quite a bit smaller (I didn’t ask her bust size - it seemed rude…) The size S is for a snugger fit or tiny people. Poncho sizing is weird - if you need help selecting a size, please post in the pattern chat thread here.
