This asymmetrical, poncho style wrap was inspired by a similar sweater found at Anthropologie. It is perfect for those autumn days when there is a little chill in the air. Size: One size Measurements: 15” wide x 46” long Materials: Cascade 220 [100% Peruvian Highland Wool, 220 yd/sk] 3 skeins US 8, 14” straight needle US 8, 20” Circular needle Tapestry needle 12 - 1 ¼ inch buttons Gauge: 17 sts/ 22 rows = 4” in stockinette on US 8 straight needles
Instructions: Using the straight needles, CO 60 stitches. 3 X 3 Rib Row 1: K3, P3 Repeat this row until piece measures 46” long. Loosely BO in pattern. Important: Because of the ribbing, the piece will need to be blocked before you start the next step. Block piece so that it measures 15” wide by 46” long.
Fold down sides according to the dotted lines in diagram 1. Using tapestry needle and matching yarn, sew together the right bottom edge to the bottom left inside edge according to diagram 2.
Evenly attach six of the buttons to the sewn edge. (Buttons are decorative and do not function.)
Collar Pick up and knit 120 stitches spaced evenly along the inside collar edge starting at the center right front (red star in diagram2) and continue around to the left center front. Begin 3 X 3 rib and K3, P3 each row until collar measures 10 inches. Bind off loosely in pattern. The inside of the collar will fold down and become the outside/rightside of the collar. Sew from the neck edge down about 6 ½ inches (depending on where you place your buttons), and leave the last 3 ½ inches open. Attach last six buttons evenly, and you are done.
