BANKS, is a skirt but it can also be worn as a poncho, so it’s a “skoncho” really!

I love it when I get multiple ways out of my knitted projects, don’t you?
Knitted in the round with 4 color changes and a bit of easy stranded knitting, a slightly ruffled bottom edge and an I-cord with big round disk beads to let you adjust the top part. Brilliant!

Gauge
12 sts and 17 rows in 2” of Stockinette stitch with smaller needle knitted flat.
NOTE: I am a loose knitter, you may not be so it is imperative to do a gauge swatch to see which needle size will work for you to get the proper fit. Some test knitters used a size 4 needle to get gauge.

Written pattern, tech edited and test knitted.
