Sans Souci, meaning without worry or care, is an all-over cable and rib poncho knit in fingering weight yarn for the perfect snuggle into knit. Pattern is written for two colours and is perfect for showing off a favourite hand-dyed colourway, alternatively two contrast colours can be used or knit all in the one colour. This pattern invites you to slow down and enjoy the knitting process, falling into the rhythm of the rib and cable pattern.
