Lithodora Poncho has the feel of a light shawl but with all the practicality of a poncho. Dress down with shorts and sandals at the beach or pop it over a summer dress as the sun falls.

One size
This poncho is sized to fit a 76–127 cm/30–50 in chest. The length from the back of the neck to the lowest hem is 54 cm/21 in.

4 skeins Manos Del Uruguay Serena,
(sport weight, 60% alpaca/40% cotton, 50g/155m/170yds) in Tezpi (7378)
3mm hook
4mm hook

Manos Del Uruguay Serena is a very light DK yarn, so if substituting use a sport weight or 4ply yarn. Cotton/wool blends or a pure alpaca would work well.

Work 18tr and 8 rows to measure 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 in using 4mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.

Skills used
Basic stitches, working into chain spaces, working in the round, chainless foundation row (optional, instructions given)

Pattern is written and charted. Worked from the neck down in one piece without turning. Neck is edged last.
