At some point - and honestly, I still don't know how! - eight 50g balls of baby alpaca DK weight yarn showed up in my stash. One day, I decided to design something that would use up as much of it as possible. I decided to go for a poncho made out of two rectangles joined together at the shoulders. One fancy lace-and-cables edging chart and a whole bunch of moss stitch later, plus some garter stitch for the top and bottom edgings, and I had myself a fantastic, flowy layering piece!

Sizing

"Wingspan" refers to wrist-to-wrist measurements with arms slightly bent. Note that the bust circumferences given for the wearer of the garment are super-approximate and very flexible, given the nature of a poncho - it’s the wingspan which should be more of a deciding factor for size.

Finished widths given are for the narrowest point. Add another 2.5” for all sizes to get the widest point.

  • XS: Wearer wingspan 52.5”, bust circumference 30”. Finished width 32”, length 22.25”
  • S: Wearer wingspan 54.5”, bust circumference 34”. Finished width 33.25”, length 23”
  • M: Wearer wingspan 56.5”, bust circumference 38”. Finished width 34.5”, length 23.25”
