Easy Folded Poncho v.2 with Sleeves and Split Neck

Easy Folded Poncho v.2 with Sleeves and Split Neck

"Add a collar and/or sleeves."

The rectangular shape of our Easy Folded Poncho couldn’t be easier to knit, and it’s amazingly versatile to wear. We have added optional features of a luxurious open collar and/or sleeves that we’re calling the Easy Folded Poncho v.2.

Our pictures show all three options: in cream with both sleeves and the split collar; in green with just sleeves; and in purple with just the split collar. 

Pick up the Churchmouse Easy Folded Poncho pattern below (if you don't already own it), and the free adaptation that explains the collar and sleeve additions.
