Beckett poncho

Get ready to fall in love with this project. It feels so super cozy and comfortable that I made two of these perfect cover ups. Your poncho can also be styled a few ways for different looks.

Details such as the decreasing seams in the top ribbing resting on either side of the shoulders and a simple staggered lace pattern that adds great textures. Worked from the bottom up and in the round with yarns carried in the back for minimal finishing.

Level of Expertise: Advanced Beginner/Easy

Knit kits are available at yarnz2GO in which the pattern is free~
The yarn: Darlon, a sport weight yarn is suitable also for vegans (309 yards per skein) in two contrasting colors (one skein each for size S, two skeins of color 1 for all other sizes, one of color 2 for sizes S and M, two for sizes L-XXXL).

The samples shown here are in size 36/38 in C1 Heirloom Blue used 305 and C2 Mushroom used 260 yards. The second version is knitted in two contrasting grey tones.

Alternatively use a sport weight yarn, C1 297/327/358/390/420/437 yards, C2 260/288/315/342/370/384 yards.

US size 8 (5 mm) circular needle 32” (80 cm) in length (you might need a shorter needle 16” (46 cm) for the top ribbing section)
2 stitch markers, preferably of different colors to mark left and right shoulders

The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.

Enjoy Beckett!
