The Alluvium Poncho

In the process of writing the pattern for The Alluvium Top, a few of my testers mentioned how much they loved the stitch pattern and that they thought it would make a beautiful blanket. This gave me the idea to make it into a poncho. And what perfect timing, because I happen to be going to an outdoor wedding this month. During the month of August, the nights begin to really cool down here in Manitoba. But I’ll stay warm and stylish with this beautiful poncho. And since Caron Simply Soft comes in about a bajillion colours, I found the perfect shade to compliment my dress!

Finished Sizes:
Instructions given to fit size X-small/small; changes for medium/large, X-large/2X-large, 3X-large/4X-large, and 5X-large/6X-large are in ()
XS/S (M/L, XL/2XL, 3XL/4XL, 5XL/6XL)

To fit Bust: 33”-37” (37”-42”, 42”-50”, 50”-58”, 58”-66”)
Shoulder Width: 14”-15” (15 ½”-17”, 17 ½”-18”, 18”-18 ½”, 18 ½”-19”)

This pattern is designed so that the bottom edge sits at or just past the elbows and the peak sits at around the hip. It will be snug around the shoulders at first, but the material does relax a little over time.

Materials:
I used Caron Simply Soft, which is 100% Acrylic, #4 Worsted weight yarn.
Any yarn of similar weight would work.
Approximately 650 (800, 900, 1050, 1400) yds.
I/5.5mm Hook
Stitch Markers
Yarn Needle
Scissors
Measuring Tape
