This asymmetrical poncho with optional cowl neck will be a pleasure to wear when you just want a light extra layer. There is added interest from the textured border created with a simple slipped stitch. A little bit of the same texture also highlights the color changes.
It’s perfect for a gradient yarn.
The easy drape of this poncho flatters many different body types.
It’s an easy, relaxing knit.

US 6 (4.0mm); for cowl neck, use either a single 16 in (40cm) circular, DPNs, or 2 circs for working in the round.
