Is it a caplet with armholes or a poncho? I think it’s a little bit of both so I named it “Capo”! This simple sleeveless top is a fun layering piece that is super cozy and really easy to make too.

It’s worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up and uses bulky-weight yarn - I used Berroco Catena which is a perfect yarn because although it’s bulky-weight it feels light as air when it’s knit up.
