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.
