Horizon Line is a hybrid between a pullover and a poncho – a Pulloncho. It has sleeves like a pullover and open side seams like a poncho. The open sides feature a pleat to keep a little mystery about what are you wearing underneath.

Horizon Line is worked from the lower back over the shoulders down to the lower front. The sleeve seam is going to be closed as you go, so no sewing is required.

This piece is your perfect layering partner. The oversized t-shaped structure is ideal to wear over a long top, blouse or dress. A generous scoop neck let’s your other layers shine through at the top as well as the bottom.
The uncomplicated stitch pattern and simple shape make it a timeless piece to be worn for many seasons.

The directions are given for 2 different gauges, 29 stitches x 50 rows and 24 stitches x 40 rows, so that you may choose the fabric that you prefer
