Cozy Pocketed Knit Poncho

By: Lorna Miser for

Cozy Pocketed Knit Poncho

Doesn't just looking at this wrap make you want to cuddle up and fall asleep in it? This Cozy Pocketed Knit Poncho is the epitome of comfort. If you want to learn how to make a poncho like this one, it's actually really simple. Even those just beginning knitting can manage this as their first big project. The deep purple color is sophisticated and gives the otherwise boho poncho an elegant appearance. We're most excited about the pockets! Simply not enough articles of women's clothing have pockets - especially not ones so deep and accessible.
