Easy Eyelet Poncho and Wrap
This is a printed pattern to be mailed or picked up.
In possibly the simplest lace pattern that exists (it’s a one-row repeat!), we’ve reinterpreted this wrap in so many yarns over the years. Now we’ve seamed it into an easy poncho for a breezy, multi-season layer. Quick to knit, it’s got more holes than yarn!
For the heavy worsted-weight version of our Easy Eyelet Wrap, we used one strand of DK-weight Rowan Softyak DK and one strand of lace-weight Kidsilk Haze held together. For the DK-weight poncho, we used Rowan Creative Linen.
This four-page pattern includes:
