Spin-Stitch Poncho Using Isager Alpaca Merino 2

Spin-Stitch Poncho Using Isager Alpaca Merino 2

"The perfect spin on our favorite poncho."

We first used this traditional Estonian stitch in a scarf pattern for the 2016 LYS Tour. Not lace, but so lace-like! Not cabled, but twisted by ‘spinning’ a cluster of stitches 180°! Delighted with the simple but dramatic results, we couldn’t wait to use this stitch in a bigger way.

Introducing the perfect twist on our favorite poncho! With alpaca and wool in equal measure, Isager Alpaca Merino 2 gives texture and definition to the beautiful stitch pattern, blocks beautifully, and has the added bonus of softness and drape. What more could we ask for? Two size options (S/M and L/XL) allow you to create just the right fit. We fastened it with eight small shell buttons (available below). Style it multiple waysshown here both over a slip dress, and on an Island beach with tee shirt and jeans!

Grab a copy of the pattern, and then choose a shade below. You'll need 4 skeins to make either size of the poncho. For a full selection of colors, see the Isager Alpaca Merino 2 yarn page.
