From the pattern: This poncho is knit first from side to side, then a border is knit onto it. After that the yoke is picked up from the border and knit up towards the neck, ending in a simple cowl neck.

Skill level: Medium to advanced. The first chart is VERY large and you will be asked to sew together the two ends of the poncho seamlessly.

Size: Will fit S/M/L or European women’s size 36 – 42 as written, depending on how tight or loose you like it, and can be knit to fit other sizes if you are a little adventurous: Work more or less repeats of chart 1, and work more or less repeats of ribbing to fit the new circumference.

Yarn used: Viking of Norway Eco Alpaca, 137 yds (125 m)/100g, 4 skeins. When substituting, use yarn with some weight and drape. You might even want to add beads to the fringe to weigh things down even more.

Also needed: scrap yarn of the same, or nearly the same thickness as project yarn in a smooth, non-felting material with good stitch definition. Stitch markers

Charts only!

This is a free pattern, which is mostly working notes and one giant chart (and one small for the border).
