We love the tweedy effect and vintage look of Jeans® in the Piero Poncho! This knitted poncho, available exclusively as a kit in our new Fall/Winter Style Guide, is beginner-friendly. It works up quickly in one piece from the neck down.
The smooth look of stockinette stitch shows off Jeans® yarn beautifully. A medium charcoal grey flecked with white is the main color, and contrasting details are in black flecked with white. The worsted weight yarn feels as soft and comforting as your favorite pair of jeans, and just as easy to care for – since it’s both machine washable and dryable.
A simple and versatile layering piece, the Piero Poncho includes ties at the sides worked in the contrasting color, along with contrasting bands at the neck and bottom. The poncho’s raglan shaping features purl detailing on either side of the increases. This makes the clean raglan lines pop.
The poncho’s edgings highlight the natural curl of stockinette stitch, and the curve of the contrasting ties echoes this design element. A touch of ribbing is worked to stabilize the fabric before knitting these stockinette stitch borders.
We can envision folks wearing this loose style in so many different ways! It’s oversized enough to fit over a light jacket, or to wear as a top over fitted jeans (as seen here). Perfect to wear at home curled up on the couch while knitting on your next project, too. We look forward to seeing how you style your Piero Poncho!
