Easy Folded Poncho Using Isager Spinni Wool 1 & Alpaca 2
Our Easy Folded Poncho pattern lends itself to knitting. And knitting again. The simple stockinette fabric is easy to knit, the construction is super simple to finish, and the style is effortless to wear. In fact, we keep finding new ways to throw it on: the obvious, points front and back; seam in front for a V-neck or in back for a draping neckline; inside-out for more texture and a cool seam detail; or all slung casually to the back for a cowled look you can wear under a coat.
We also keep finding new yarns to knit it in. This version mixes Marianne Isager's Alpaca 2 for softness and hazy drape, and Spinni Wool 1 for crispness—the best of both worlds. Hold a strand of each yarn throughout. We've created combinations in several of Marianne's muted and heathered shades for multi-season wearability. Which will you knit next? Don't forget to grab the pattern above if you don't already own one!
Note: If you would like to add the original optional cowl to your poncho, add 1 more skein of Isager Alpaca 2. See The Details tab for information about adding the new "Poncho v.2" options of a collar and sleeves.
