Spotted On Ravelry – Ponchetta

Sometimes you find a garment that perfectly sums up your season. “Ponchetta“, designed by Elizabeth Smith of The Brown Sheep, is one of those designs.

Made from 3-6 skeins of Hikoo® Simplinatural featured in color #32 First Press Olive, this piece will have you forgetting about the cold, wet, snowy winter weather and transition with you nicely into Spring.

“Knit seamlessly from the bottom-up, this poncho makes a perfect little layering piece. Sized from XS to 2X, it features an easy yet interesting stitch pattern and straight-forward construction.

It is worked flat from the hem to shoulders (on a long circular needle) and the 3 Needle Bind-Off Technique is used to seam up the left shoulder (a very easy bind-off technique if you have never used it before). Remaining stitches are then transferred to a smaller circular needle and worked in the round to create the cowl neck.

It’s suitable for beginners looking to branch out from scarves and cowls and more advanced knitters will enjoy the relaxing nature of this knit.” – Elizabeth Smith
