"Simple Swancho" 
“I love a poncho. Point blank. Period.” - Gaye “GG” Glasspie

A poncho is the perfect accessory. Throw it in your bag and it's ready for a too-air-conditioned office or the breezy beach at sunset.

“Simple Swancho” by Karida Collins is the ideal project for new knitters because once you realize you’re knitting a poncho, you’re almost done! Knit from the top down, “Simple Swancho” is half-sweater, half-poncho, and a whole lot of fun to complete!
