Cowloncho KAL!

The Fun is On!

Join us for some fun summer knitting, and you might even win a prize!  cowloncho-front2.jpg

Description: It's a cozy cowl attached to an even cozier poncho - what else would you call it?!  Beginning at the neck, this design uses a variety of fun stitch patterns to blend five colors into one awesome garment.  Short-row shaping on the sides allows this poncho to drape evenly over the shoulders.

The pattern is written for One Size which fits women through size Womens XL. When worn, the circumference (after blocking) around the bust and upper arms is:

  • Approximately 60 inches measured 10 inches below the shoulders
  • Approximately 66 inches measured 12 inches below the shoulders

Circumference at hem is approximately 80 inches after blocking.

No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL, but kits are available for $75 or $80 in your choice 10 beautiful Fade Set colorways, or in any of our Brewski solid colors. Or, if you prefer to visit your stash, you can download the pattern from Ravelry.

sm-cowloncho.jpgKits Include:

  1. Five - 100g skeins of Sock-aholic Brewski yarn in your choice of Fade Set or solid color.
  2. A cute little Cow Progress Marker to commemorate your participation in this COW-loncho project KAL, and to keep track of your progress between show and tell opportunities like Mark It Monday!
  3. The Cowloncho pattern by Wendy Gaal in pdf, with additional options for hard copy and Ravelry library copy.
