The Fibre Co. Striped Poncho PDF
The Fibre Co. Striped Poncho is worked in one piece and is worked flat, with the simplicity of eyelet stitches and stripes doing all the work. Seaming is used to join the piece at the shoulders and would make a good step into larger scale knitting for those ready to explore beyond accessories. The stripes also make an ideal canvas for exploring the colors available in The Fibre Co. Luma, a Merino wool, organic cotton, linen and silk blend in a sport weight yarn. Instructions are also provided for creating a scarf.
