If you’re like me, your office is freezing. It’s too cold for a sweater, but it’s too hot for a coat. So, I wanted to make something that I could stay warm in, but also allow air flow while still looking cute and chic. This design is half a nod to those cute fall fashion vibes with its double brim collar, but it also subtly reminds me of a caroling jacket that I used to wear as a kid when I went door to door around Christmas time with the cables at the bottom. Pair it with some cute tights, boots and a toque/beanie, and you’re sure to stay warm.

Note: This poncho is knit top down and is written for three sizes S/M (L/XL, 2XL/3XL). Knit in the round, seamless, with an applied border which is knit flat.

This pattern has been tested in all sizes.
