This poncho is so simple and quick to work up, you’ll be wearing it in no time!

The simple stitch pattern is easy to remember, perfectly highlights the character of roving yarn, and creates a delightfully cozy garment that you won’t want to take off.

The exciting structure of roving yarn is created by working in differing lengths and thicknesses of colorful fibers during spinning, and Schachenmayr Leana roving yarn is a cheery yarn with great color effects whether using a neutral palette or a beautifully vibrant color-way.

Due to the nature of the Garter Slip Stitch and the roving yarn, the points will stretch over time, elongating the shape and accentuating the drape. (Photos taken after stretching has occurred.)
