"Like a really elegant sweatshirt."

Our favorite poncho transcends the trends. It’s easy to knit (just one long stockinette rectangle), easy to finish, and easy to throw on. Knit with a cowl or without, you’ll see why this is a Churchmouse favorite!

We knit an elegant, gently fuzzy Easy Folded Poncho in Shibui Billow. In this DK-weight yarn, lofty wisps of merino and alpaca embrace a strong core of cotton for a strand with the gentlest touch of fuzz. The center of the yarn contrasts slightly with the more saturated halo, resulting in a fabric with rich visual depth.
