“This versatile garment is worked sideways in two halves seamed together at the back. A final short row section forms a small collar. The entire fabric is knit in garter stitch, but short rows at the side add shaping and extra drape. The resulting shape can be worn upside down, as a scarf or poncho, or even wrapped around the waist for a transparent layer with pants. Choose a lace weight yarn for a light airy fabric or substitute fingering weight yarn with the same needle size for a more solid structured garment.” Stephen West

If you ever wanted to make a Stephen West design, but worried it would be too difficult, this pattern is a great place to start with his designs.  You will learn short rows, yarn overs, closing yarn overs, cable cast on, stretchy bind off, and three needle bindoff.

Cost: 30.00 (What a great deal!)
