This simple garter stitch striped poncho is a fantastic canvas for playing with color. Use up your scraps from previous projects, or combine single skeins that you’ve accumulated over time.

A 32-inch or longer circular needle in the size required to achieve gauge is recommended, to hold all the stitches along the long edge of each rectangle.

Worsted-weight yarn in the following amounts…
Colors A and B = 200 yards each
