As the weather descends into the cooler Fall days and leaves scatter and crunch underfoot, the Glenavy Poncho and Armwarmers will help you transition into the winter season.

This stylish, contemporary poncho is perfect for layering, featuring sideways construction and rich textural details complimented by an eye-catching lace border.

Paired with customizable armwarmers, this design offers all the benefits of a warm sweater with the versatility of adapting to capricious changes in temperature without sacrificing polish to frumpy layers.

Easy enough for an enthusiastic beginning knitter to use to practice their skills, this comfy, seamless design offers a balance between easy knitting and engaging lace to thrill even an experienced knitter.

And as always, this pattern offers step-by-step instructions, fully charted and written, with complimenting photo tutorials to make sure you are supported in every way to make this an enjoyable knitting experience!
