This poncho is a perfect garment for shoulder seasons (pardon the pun). Wear it as a spring coat when the weather allows, or throw it over your tee shirt when the air conditioner in your office gets cranked during the summer.
Worked in twisted rib and a bulky weight yarn, the gauge can be deceiving. Look for a yarn that asks for 9 - 12mm needles and 8-10 stitches over 4”/10 cm. You’ll be working it at a tighter gauge to get a denser fabric.
This is an easy-to-intermediate pattern. Worked in two pieces, it makes use of matched double decreases, and raglan seams are sewn to join the top. Stitches are picked up at the neck and worked in the round. Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off keeps the neckline tight but stretchy enough to fit over the head. Customize the front openings to your liking - I chose to keep mine open enough that I could easily work at my computer with it on. Add zippers or a latch closure - whatever suits you!
