Product Details

Ombre stripes with stranded stars, flowers and arrows in a purl-free stockinette stitch poncho. Yes, that's right! ... every row is a RS row, and the only purl stitches you'll work are in the ribbing! And the fringe allows for lots of color changes with practically no loose ends to deal with.

Painted Desert is worked flat in one piece forming a rectangle that is folded with a single seam from ribbed border to shaped neckline. An open or buttoned ribbed cowl is picked up and knitted.

Pattern contains all the information you'll need to either replicate my colorway (lists and charts) or to create you own (suggestions on selecting colors and what order to work them in).

**Gauge: **24 sts and 32 rows = 4" in Stockinette stitch.

**Techniques used: **Stranded knitting (right side only), pick up and knit, basic increase and decrease stitches.

**Pattern includes: **Written instructions, glossary, color sequence of sample is written and charted, stranded sections are charted.
