Meet Match Play, a poncho featuring high-impact textured stitches and great techniques. Match Play has a bit of structure as Michelle nudges you toward full sweater knitting. The best aspect of this poncho is that it has an easygoing fit to be figure-flattering on everyone. Match Play’s design features a vertical central motif to elongate every silhouette and who doesn’t like that?

Discover a new way to execute a favorite stitch that will forever change this technique for you. Perhaps life changing is a bit strong of a term, but it certainly might rock your world! Michelle is excited to share the updated stitch and its accompanying video with you.

The true luxury of Match Play is due to the glorious Sueno yarn. This merino/bamboo blend gives the fabric drape, fluidity and sheen along with excellent stitch definition.
