This stylish poncho can be worked in sizes from baby to adult as long as you have a few measurements. A Size Chart is provided for averages sizes in each of the size ranges.

The cable twist forms a detailed rib and the full circle body has a snuggly warm look and feel.

Pattern is worked from the Collar down. The circular body is worked in one piece, in the round. The Edging and Sleeve Cuffs are worked in two parts but can be worked in one piece if you are careful to line the sleeves up directly opposite each other.

The pattern is available in both US and UK terms.
