Twice Reversible Poncho - Ultra Alpaca Chunky Version

Twice Reversible Poncho - Ultra Alpaca Chunky Version

"Stylish, comfortable and quick to knit."

We’ve finessed the details of this longtime favorite style to make it ‘twice reversible’: both the fabric and the shape can be flipped. We chose a stitch pattern that has two ‘right sides’ and added a nifty hybrid graft/seam for true reversibility. You can wear your poncho point-in-front for relaxed ‘boho’ style or point-in-back for a little more polish. Options upon options!

This version uses the chunky gauge option; the pattern also has instructions for worsted-weight yarns like Berocco Ultra Alpaca (if you'd like a more refined fabric).

This poncho shape doesn’t follow the usual conventions of sizing (bust/waist/hips)—it’s more about scale. We designed this poncho in two sizes so your result will be comfortable and flattering. The two keys to the fit are the neckline and the back/arm length. The width of the rectangle determines where it hits—we like just at the bent elbow, which is also just above the waist.

Pick up the pattern below, and then choose your color of chunky-weight Berocco Ultra Alpaca Chunky. We've selected a few favorite wardrobe colors, or you can head over to the Ultra Alpaca Chunky page to see the other available colors - you'll need 6 skeins for S/M or 7 skeins for L/XL (see the "Knitters' Notes" for help on choosing a size).

CHOOSING A SIZE
This poncho shape doesn’t follow the usual conventions of sizing (bust/waist/hips)— it’s more about scale. We designed this poncho in two sizes so your result will be comfortable and flattering. Note: Both are shown here in size S/M.

WHAT ARE THE FACTORS
First, you need to understand how this piece is created: A long rectangle is connected short end to long side. The two keys to the fit are the neckline and the back/arm length. The size of the neck opening is the difference between the width of the short edge and the length of the long edge; i.e., 32"/81cm (34"/86cm). The width of the rectangle determines where it hits—we like just at the bent elbow, which is also just above the waist.

WHERE TO MEASURE YOURSELF
Measure around your shoulders (including upper arms) just above the bust. The neck opening should be smaller than this. Measure your back length from prominent bone at base of neck to natural waistline. The width should not be much longer than this. Measure from side of neck, over shoulder, to just above elbow. The width should not be much longer than this.

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE
We’re guessing you’ll make this poncho more than once. The smaller scale can look a little more tailored and classic, while the larger scale can give a more sporty or bohemian look. You may like to try both sizes.
