These Poncho-like garments are made by knitting one piece of fabric, then grafting one edge and seaming another to create a neck opening and one armhole.

  • The greenish sample is knitted with Cotton Fine yarn (knitted with a single strand), and the purple sample is knitted with Linen yarn (knitted with double strands held together).

  • Both samples are knitted from the same pattern with the same needle size.

  • The “Cotton Fine” top is light and airy, and the “Linen” top has nice drape.
