Yarn
MC- Dk or Sport Weight approximately (900, 1440, 1760) yards
OPTION 1: CC1- Spin Cycle Dk or Stonehenge Fiber Mill Crazy DK, approximately 230 yards/skein, knit from BOTH ENDS
OPTION 2: CC’s A, B, C, D Optional. (Minimum 100 yards of each. You could used more than 4 CC’s here, just follow the note below)
NOTE: Spin cycle or Stonehenge Fiber Mill crazy DK are both skeins that have a marled AND color changing effect, which I think makes this a unique and very fun knit! If you can’t get your hands on either of these yarns, you can mimic this effect by using up to 4 or 5 different colors of a fingering or heavy lace weight yarn, held double, by periodically changing one of the CC’s at a time. For example, you would start holding CC A and CC B together, then break CCA and join CC C, then break CC B and join CC D etc…..

Notes
This poncho is worked from the top down, in the round. With a subtle textured detail around the collar and short row shaping around the neck, the body of the poncho is worked even in stockinette stitch with a panel of color work across the bust. The poncho is then split in half and the front and back are worked flat to create openings for arm holes, then the body is re-joined in the round for finishing.
