The perfect convertible outer layer is worked seamlessly from the top down using short rows to shape the back and raglan increases for shoulder shaping, adorned with a twisted stitch pillar down the front, lace diamond inserts at the elbows and an eyelet edging. Wear it as a drapey cowl, pull it down over your shoulders just a little for a capelet/cowl, or pull it all the way down for a poncho.

Easily customize the pattern with an i-cord or ribbed neck, use a single textured or speckled yarn, or experiment with your own yarn combinations. And if you don’t like the hug of a snug poncho, simply continue your raglan increases longer for a wider, looser poncho. Just remember you’ll need more yarn.

Have fun making it your own favorite “shopping shawl”!
