About this item


“Choose sport- or chunky-weight!”

Inspired by our ever-popular Easy Folded Poncho, this scaled-down version is totally seamless and slips easily over the shoulders. The simple shape makes it easy to re-yarn in another gauge. Just swatch for a softly draping fabric, then multiply the schematic dimensions by your stitch gauge—the math is easy!

A soft, sport-weight yarn, like String Blossom, offers a more polished look, while a plush, chunky-weight yarn, like Rowan Brushed Fleece, yields bold coziness!

This 4-page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by the talented Jared Flood
  • Special Technique—Provisional Cast-on: Crocheted Over Needle
  • Comprehensive sizing schematics
  • Instructions for finishing and blocking your piece

            Chunky-weight: US 10½ (6.5mm) 24"/60cm and 16"/40cm circular needle, or size to obtain gauge.
            Both: Spare 16"/40cm circular needle one size smaller than gauge needle. US D/3 (3.25mm) crochet hook and 1 locking marker for provisional cast-on.

            It’s best to swatch both flat and in the round. You may need two different needle sizes to get gauge for each section.
