This modern poncho is sure to turn heads. The Glistening Knit Poncho Pattern features brilliant sequins against a simple stockinette backdrop. This allows the yarn to really shine! Because the stitches are so simple, this knitted shoulder wrap is perfect for knitters of any skill level. Ponchos like this are perfect for layering in the colder months but also look bohemian and cute in the spring with a pair of shorts and a tank top underneath! Try knitting it in white for a stunning, wintry look, or keep the deep navy color for some romantic appeal.

I love the look of this poncho and I think you could leave it unsewn and use it as a shawl.
