This pattern has been independently reviewed be a qualified technical editor and test knit by a cadre of enthusiastic knitters. The Stoneland pattern includes written instructions and a clear, professional design layout. The pattern also includes a diagram to clearly show how the poncho should be folded, seamed, and finished. Measurements are provided in both English and metric units. The pattern includes sizing for small through extra large.
Stoneland offers easy-folded poncho construction. It is essentially a seamed rectangle with a wee bit of I-cord finishing (instructions provided). The pattern also provides tips for saving time by cabling without a cable needle.
Stoneland is knit in 100% alpaca Puna Amano yarn, although substituting with any sport weight yarn wold likely work quite well. The cable fabric stitch to adds depth and dimensionality to this poncho without being too fussy, difficult, or busy. I love that the stitch has texture without being too ornate. It’s subtle, but not just stockinette. This results in a piece that is very wearable but not severely boring.
