Winona is a tiny village located along historic Route 66 in northwestern Arizona. The area has been inhabited for ages—first by Native Americans, then by European settlers—and the Winona Poncho incorporates artistic influences from the different cultures that have populated the area.

The poncho is worked in one piece from side to side in an allover wave lace pattern that is worked on both right- and wrong-side rows and then grafted. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. The fringe adds the final touch to this bohemian-inspired summer poncho.

You can choose to work the lace pattern from written instructions or the chart.
