Autumn in Alta Poncho

image

Alta, Wyoming is my home and favorite place to be during the Autumn months when the air cools and our entire landscape turns gold. This poncho, perfect for layering, is an easy top down construction with an elegant ribbed cowl neck, stockinette body and a double seed stitch hem. I used a discontinued aran weight yarn, but any aran weight will work. Just do a swatch and check your gauge. Happy knitting!
