A basic, classic poncho with some little details – a crossed garter collar that can be worn up or down, front shaping that comes to a point, curved back shaping, and side slits for more freedom of movement.
More tailored, less hippy-chic! A poncho for minimalists :)
The suggested yarn gives the perfect amount of drape - if you substitute, look for something that knits to gauge without being too stiff or too loose. A bit of alpaca or silk with wool seems to be a good choice.
