Knit in a festival of colors, a split-neck poncho is a go-with-everything three-season favorite. Loose and roomy, it drapes just so in double-stranded Heritage 150 from Cascade Yarns. Knit/purl basketweave patterning worked throughout texturizes the marled stripes, which are created by holding a dark plum strand together with a rainbow of other shades. The wide sleeves are picked up and knit after the shoulders are seamed. Multicolor garter-stitch borders finish the look.
