The Beanstalk Poncho is a perfect accessory for spring or summer. Knit with two 400 yard skeins of fingering weight yarn, it is light and airy. A single beanstalk climbs from hem to shoulder, reaching for the sky on both front and back. This poncho’s loveliness is enhanced by Three Fates Yarns’ five shade gradient sets, but would be equally lovely in a semi-solid colorway.

Poncho is knit in two pieces and joined by three needle bind off at the shoulder. Seam on long edge is mattress stitch or slip stitch crochet: knitter’s choice.

Thank you to tech editor Amanda Woodruff, test knitter Sarah Peery, and model Bobbi Sullivan.
