Pop on a Poncho

By maddy laine

A lightweight and versatile layer, this eyelet stitch poncho can be worn in a variety of ways.  Wear it as a wide rectangular poncho, with the longest edge over the shoulders and arms, creating a wide crew neckline with vertical bands of eyelets, as shown in the first photo, or with the longest edge towards the front and back, featuring horizontal eyelet rows and a deep V-neckline . Optional buttonholes can be worked in the side borders.  The pattern is offered in sizes S, M, L  and the sample shown was knit in a cotton blend.  Create a similar look with elann.com Go Lightly Worsted cotton/acrylic or  Joie De Vivre 4 Ply cotton/merino.
