Knit entirely in garter stitch, this DK weight poncho features stripes and a join-as-you-go modular technique. It showcases hand-dyed yarn without needing to alternate skeins. The size can be easily adjusted to your individual needs with simple adjustments to overall stitch count or gauge. It is designed to use most of your yarn– without running out– because that’s never fun! Styling ideas include wearing the poncho alone or adorning it with removable pedestal-style button closures.
The term Shot Reverse Shot comes from a film technique. One character is shown, presumably looking at another character, and the next frame shows the other character, presumably looking back at the first. The viewer figures out that the characters are looking at one another, or so it seems. The sides of this poncho are slightly different, and some parts remain out of view while others are visible. Your mind fills in the missing pieces, thus understanding the whole while only viewing a part at a time.
