Graceful draping meets feminine shaping in a romantic A-line cardigan, which gleams in white and natural Silk Garden colorway #269. The fronts are knit crosswise from the horseshoe-cable front bands, while the back is worked in two pieces from a center provisional cast-on. Short rows shape the swingy hemline. After the back and side seams are joined with Kitchener stitch, the sleeves are worked from the yoke stitches down to the cabled cuff. Delicate picots trim the edges.

Bright intarsia-knit stars splash across a blanket knit in soft Silk Garden. It's worked in four separate strips with wide garter-stitch bands dividing each motif block. Garter-stitch edgings are worked along the circumference of each strip, forming the blanket's outermost borders and allowing for easy seaming. The deep purple, black, blue and violet tones of colorway #395 create a rich celestial background, while the reds and rusts of colorway #84 emblazon the star motifs.

Knit throughout in wide stripes, three sunset shades of Silk Garden create an ombre effect in which #84's reds and rusts and #413's black,

The poncho is worked in one piece from front to back with slight shaping at the neckline. To trim the outer edges, three stitches are slipped at the start of every row. Trellis-knotted fringe embellishes the front and back hemlines.

Noro Patterns - 13 Striped Poncho - PDF DOWNLOAD
Origami properties apply to a modern-fit poncho. First a foundational rectangular strip is worked. Then stitches for a second strip are picked up along one half of the left-hand long edge. Finally, the second strip is folded and its outer end is joined to the same long edge from which stitches were picked up and knit. The front neck edge is shaped slightly for a comfortable fit. Contrasting skeins of Kureyon colorway #102 are alternated throughout in narrow stripes of hot pink, orange, purple and blue.
