Be So Brave Knit Poncho

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.

Please bookmark this page and enjoy the pattern as often as you like.

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!
I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.
Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.
I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.
But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.
Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.
Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports
 Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.


xoxo, Kristin
