Brioche, Chevrons & wonderfully soft yarn in great colors – all my favorite things bundled together into a poncho. I love the cushy soft texture you only get with brioche stitch. Wearing this poncho feels like yarn is giving you a hug. Cast on and be snuggly warm in this great layering piece!
The Poncho is knit top down from an i-cord in one- and two-color brioche. Increases along the sides shape the poncho. The fun really starts once you get to the chevrons! The ponchos lower edge is also surrounded by an i-cord.
