I came up with this simple poncho as a way to comfort myself during these stressful times. Beginning with a thick and snuggly cowl neck with a spiraling design and then continuing through a simple and reassuring field of stockinette, this piece comforts during knitting and then transitions into a stylish blankie you can wear!

A portable, stylish blankie. Linus’ dream come true.

(FYI - Linus was my favorite character in Peanuts. We were so alike! I even played Linus in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” in high school.)

You can expand the size by simply increasing the number of rows you knit. However, keep in mind that you will need to purchase more yarn to make that happen. The 48” wingspan works for many sizes and I’ve tried it on a lot of people. You’ll notice that my model is tall and skinny, but the piece looks just as good on me and I am 5’2” and round, round, round!
