Who cares about sunny summer when you can wear this stunner once the weather gets cool? Caledonia is an open-front poncho that looks great with leggings or a fitted skirt. Broad stripes spice up the design and a knit-purl pattern gives the fabric a pebbly surface. The two fronts are knit separately from the bottom up. At the shoulders, they are joined and the back is knit downward. Caledonia is knit using Berroco's Cotolana, a worsted-weight blend of wool and cotton, with a touch of nylon for stability. The poncho measures approximately 34" wide x 28" long, with a loose, free fit. It can be machine washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 8 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 29" circular needle in US size 8
- tapestry needle
