This beautiful and easy to knit poncho is an incredibly flattering accessory for anyone’s wardrobe. It is as soft and cozy as wrapping yourself in a blanket, but flattering enough to wear just about anywhere. Paired with boots and skinny jeans, it is a chic look with minimal effort. The horizontal hem is very flattering and buttoning up the sizes for mock sleeves makes this a very practical accessory, too.

It knits up super quick on US11 (8mm) knitting needles with Be So Brave Yarn, 100% American Merino Wool, #4 medium worsted weight yarn.
