Schatzi is a cable encrusted poncho with a modern edge. A central cable panel is flanked by fields of seed stitch and bordered with a garter stitch edge. It is the simplest of pullovers as it has no sleeves - but it does have a very cozy shawl collar for keeping warm.

Schatzi is knit in one piece beginning at the bottom front. Stitches for the shawl collar are picked up around the neckline and worked at the end.

Please note the stitch patterns used in this poncho are worked from charts.

This pattern is part of the 10 TINY KNITS collection. It is available to purchase as a single pattern or as an ebook.
