You’ll score a fashion “victory” when you arrive at the game sporting your favorite University of Texas team mascot in a beautiful cabled design that runs the length of this poncho. The pattern knits up quickly, as the cable only twists every tenth row. Any 30 stitch cable design can be substituted for the designated cable chart if you wish to knit more than one!

Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere (70% superwash merino wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon; 200 yds / 4 oz)
4 skeins in CHINATOWN APPLE #320
