The Sextant Poncho is an easy, top down, seamless knit with a generous, loose neckline, a little raglan shaping, and a straight cruise down the body letting the gradient yarn do all the work. The result is flattering on all body types and an easy fall wardrobe staple.

Please make sure to check sizing below; 10 inches of ease are built into the pattern, and if you want a longer poncho you will need a larger kit.

You will need:
One poncho kit from The Blue Brick in worsted weight or approximately 800 - 1200 yards of worsted weight yarn.
