Being off-kilter can make for a stunning visual – like this poncho, which can be worn asymmetrically for more drama, or symmetrically if your prefer.
Either way showcases your knitting expertise and modern fashion sense with the gorgeous combination of three textured stitch patterns and the added flair of fringe.
A wide candlelight lace panel is bordered by beautiful leaf borders and Moss stitch edges all around.
Poncho is cleverly constructed by sewing partial edges of two rectangular knit pieces. Knitting rectangular shapes allows you to focus on the stitch patterns and not worry about shaping along the way.
This piece looks fabulous over skinny jeans and boots (or heels)!
Finished Knit Measurements: Approx 18 " [45.5 cm] length from neckline down at center front (when worn asymmetrically as shown); 29 ½" [75 cm] length at longest point measured from shoulder down (not including fringe). One size can fit Sizes S to 1X. Measured flat and folded asymmetrically: 25" [63.5 cm] width at bust line can accommodate bust sizes 34" [86.5 cm] to 46" [116.5 cm].

This is the second sweaterbabe pattern I ordered and I found it easy to follow, even if having to tutn overvthrnpages was a bit of a bother sometimes ;-) the outcome is still open, as work is still in progress, bit the pattern is turning out nicely.

As with other Sweaterbabe patterns I have found this very easy to understand and follow. Yarn description is very detailed enabling me to find something similar in the UK. Pattern is complex to keep three individual patterns going at the same time but not difficult. I like to follow the written instructions which are very clear, but there are charts if you prefer to follow those. Looking forward to finishing it and wearing it.
