A simple poncho worked with classic Irish shaping, this project is great for advanced beginners or as a relaxing project on long commutes. It’s worked in a wide garter/stockinette rib pattern to create perpendicular lines of symmetry across the body, with a squishy cowl neck and picot bind off for a final feminine touch.
