Poncho's make a great addition to your wardrobe. They are comfortable to wear with many different outfits and flattering to every body shape while at the same time keeping you nicely warm on chilly days!
Inese Sang designed Ravie for Rosy Green's Cheeky Merino Joy which works wonderfully with the smock stitch border. An easy knitting project but with enough variety to keep even the more experienced knitter interested. The smock border is finished off with an i-cord edge while the rest of the poncho is knit in garter stitch.
