A new girl and her mother appeared at my knitting group with a red poncho. Someone had left it at a child’s birthday party, the mother said, and was I able to help her daughter figure out the pattern. The girl spoke little English. We drew schematics, and although I speak no Italian, it quickly became clear that we could communicate in the language of knits and purls. She wanted to make a poncho and I could write a pattern. This “beautiful red poncho” was the result.
In lots of sizes with simple construction, the advanced beginner familiar with cables will enjoy making this fun-to-wear, all-weather poncho.
