Join me this October for Match Play, a poncho featuring high-impact textured stitches and great techniques. Match Play has a bit of structure as I nudge you toward full sweater knitting. The best aspect of this poncho is that it has an easygoing fit to be figure-flattering on everyone. Match Play’s design features a vertical central motif to elongate every silhouette and who doesn’t like that?
I discovered a new way to execute a favorite stitch that will forever change this technique for you. Perhaps life changing is a bit strong of a term, but it certainly rocked my world! I am excited to share the updated stitch and its accompanying video with you.
The true luxury of Match Play is due to the glorious Sueno yarn. This merino/bamboo blend gives the fabric drape, fluidity and sheen along with excellent stitch definition.
The photo above shows my initial design sketch. I will be releasing tempting, mini clues up until the KAL debut on October 4th so stay tuned.
