A poncho not reminiscent of the -70s but fashionable in addition to being warm, was my aim. It is easy to knit in 3 identical rectangular pieces but an intermediate challenge to sew together. The yarn I have chosen is a mixture of alpaca and mohair with a little acrylic from Texere Yarns.
This design is made of 2 Hexagonal grannies, joined together to form the body and sleeves, and adding a hood while lengthening the sleeves and bottom to desired length. It’s a very simple concept that any level of skill can grasp and mold to their liking.
