Banked Coals Knit Poncho Pattern
The only thing more beautiful than the lovely fade of this knit poncho is the person wearing it!
There's always something unique that a poncho has to offer, and this Banked Coals Knit Poncho Pattern has two interesting elements: first is the stunning shift of colors in the yarn used, and second is the asymmetrical nature of the poncho itself. If you're a little bit edgy and normal, symmetrical ponchos bore you, this might do the trick. You can learn how to knit a woolen poncho with some cozy, bulky yarn for something truly warm enough to get you through the winter, or you can use cotton or linen yarn for something breathable for spring.
