It’s a modular poncho… Moduloncho!
This cousin-of-a-shawl has a modular construction and classic lines for ease of wearing and styling.
The design accommodates a range of sizes, and can be easily modified to fit your needs based on its modular construction.
I used some great yarns from Leading Men Fiber Arts for my design! I love the range of colors and bases they have to offer. My poncho was created with 1 skein of Soliloquy (150g per 657 yards of fingering weight yarn, 100% Bluefaced Leicester), 1 skein of Diva (150g per 600 yards of fingering weight yarn, 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk) and 1 mini skein of Show Stopper (20g per 92 yards of fingering weight yarn, 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon).
A larger sized garment can be created with 4 100g skeins of fingering weight yarn. This design would also lend itself to using partial skeins of yarn to create a wonderfully expressive garment!
