  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Gather an eclectic mix of DK and worsted weight yarns to knit this stripey syncopated brioche poncho. The shape is constructed with two main sections folded and seamed together producing a lovely asymmetric fabric. Hold one main color throughout the entire project and use several contrast colors for two-row stripes.

    Leave the contrast color yarn tails as fringe and play with the many fun ways to wear this convertible garment.
