“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!

The “Simple Swancho” pattern is available in Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 18: Beginnings. Get your copy here.
