Soft as a cloud and warm! and with the bonus of no sizing hassles :-). Our grey version would blend right in on a Parisian afternoon. This easy poncho is completely reversible, since the stich is Esther Bozak's 'mistake rib'. Its nice stretchy texture makes it a good fit for a wide range of sizes. The point can be worn in any direction, for a bit of built-in variety.
Width 16", Length 47"
4 sts. per inch, or 15st per 10cm.
Slip stich strips or sew together as shown in diagram
(matching A to A and B to B).
Weave in ends with yarn needle.
You may also want to trim this, using Whisper all around for a nice soft effect, as shown here. We recommend a plain single-crochet with a size K crochet, but you can also pick up and knit a couple rows of garter stitch if you're crochet-challenged. For a more agressive trim, you might want to use some Squiggle instead, or some Tingle for a very bushy effect, perhaps only around the neck?
