Tranquil Dusk Poncho

By: Lisa Richardson for knitrowan.com

Tranquil Dusk Poncho

Get ready to look boho-chic with this Tranquil Dusk Poncho. This easy poncho pattern uses self-striping yarn to achieve a design that looks like the sky as the sun dips beneath the horizon. The pattern is simple enough that even a beginner can manage it, and the kidsilk yarn is so soft that you're not going to want to take it off. We love this poncho for the summertime, as the yarn is light and delicate, but it looks just as lovely atop a long-sleeved shirt or sweater for the autumn and winter.
