Potawatomi

“Autumn is a second spring, when every leaf is a flower
– Albert Camus


Welcome in fall with this stylish poncho, knit mainly in stockinette stitch with a dramatic cabled border, knit-in fringe and a cozy collar that can button up as a cowl.

Potawatomi is knit flat in one piece from ribbed end to ribbed end with a shaped neckline. Thanks to the fringed edging, every row is worked as a right side row, making the stockinette portion purl free!

The ribbed cowl – perfect for buttoning up on a chilly day – is picked up and knitted. A single seam runs up one side from ribbing to neckline.

Finished Size: After seaming, fabric forms a folded rectangle 24″ by 27″ which includes a 3″ knotted fring. Cowl/collar measures 24″ around (buttoned) and 6-12″ deep. Size can be easily modified; guidance for mods in pattern instructions.
