Easy Folded Poncho Using Tahki Ripple
Our favorite poncho transcends the trends—and the seasons. It’s easy to knit (just one long stockinette rectangle), easy to finish, and easy to throw on. In a light and breezy fiber, it transforms into an elegantly cool layering piece.
Knit up with this undulating, mercerized cotton ribbon—Tahki Ripple—our poncho takes on an entirely new (and entirely intriguing) texture. This glowing, thick-and-thin fiber is eminently wearable as the weather turns warm. Ripple adds interest to the simplest of stitch patterns and a supple drape to this Churchmouse Classic!
Poncho: 22 x 50"/56 x 127cm, before folding.
6 skeins Tahki Ripple (142 yds/130m each); shown in Color 008 Ebony.
