Being off-kilter can make for a stunning visual – like this poncho, which can be worn asymmetrically for more drama, or symmetrically if your prefer.

Either way showcases your knitting expertise and modern fashion sense with the gorgeous combination of three textured stitch patterns and the added flair of fringe.

A wide candlelight lace panel is bordered by beautiful leaf borders and Moss stitch edges all around.

Poncho is cleverly constructed by sewing partial edges of two rectangular knit pieces. Knitting rectangular shapes allows you to focus on the stitch patterns and not worry about shaping along the way.

This piece looks fabulous over skinny jeans and boots (or heels)!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Approx 18 “ 45.5 cm length from neckline down at center front (when worn asymmetrically as shown); 29 ½” 75 cm length at longest point measured from shoulder down (not including fringe).

 18-st Banana Tree panel = 3 3/8” 8.5 cm wide
 24 rows = approx 4” 10 cm in Rev St st and Banana Tree
 41-st Candlelight Lace = 9 ¾“ 25 cm
