Pattern accessibility There are three versions of this pattern pdf available. Print (3 column), mobile, and low vision.

As it requires only one skein, Poza is a great smaller-scale project that’s still full of neat little details that make it a really unique, beautiful accessory, perfect for dressing your outfit up or down. It’s worked in the round from the bottom up with gentle shaping to taper it towards the neck. The border stitch pattern gives a beautifully elaborate effect while being much easier to create than it looks. Those chevrons are echoed in the sparsely-dotted small Vs between the border and the neckline. Although the twisted rib edging that begins and ends the pattern can be a little challenging, it’s definitely worth the effort. The pattern has been updated in 2020 to include written direction for the large motif section at the bottom which was previously given in chart format only.
