Inspired by all the Fisherman’s rib patterns in fashion, I have designed a poncho in an oversized sweater style with longs splits in the side. The poncho is knitted in parts to create a contrast between the unstructured cable and the linear rib, called patent in Norwegian. The large splits on the sides make the poncho less voluminous. The sleeves are knitted long, to keep you warm on cold days. The poncho is knitted in a beautiful camelbrown Ask - Hifa 2, a pure wool with plenty of bounce.

Patent Poncho pattern is available in English and Norwegian (på norsk).

The poncho is knitted in 4 identical Fisherman’s rib side panels and 2 cable panels where the front is one pattern repeat shorter than the back. The sleeve is an extended cable panel with 3 cables instead of 2 and worked in the round. Just as the cable collar which is a continuation of the cable panels. The length, including sleeve length, can easily be adjusted by knitting the panels/sleeves longer or shorter. Please note that if knitted in pure wool the panels shrink in length, but grows in width.
