The Cambridge Poncho has an ultra spacious fit and provides extra warmth on chilly days. Wide ribbed bands give extra pizzazz to all of the hems. Throw it over your clothes and sip a cup of cocoa while enjoying this cozy poncho. This gorgeous cabled pattern is from Knit.Wear Spring/Summer 2017. The poncho is constructed by knitting in the round and making flat pieces with a touch of seaming.

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Acadia by Fibre Company (60% Merino Wool / 20% Baby Alpaca / 20% Silk; 50g/145yds): 13 (16, 24, 29) Skeins. Shown in Moraine. Acadia is one of the softest, lushest yarns you will ever touch. This gentle tweed isn't scratchy or stiff, but has an astounding kitten softness with amazing drape. PRE-ORDER now available in all colors. Please contact us prior to placing your order for color availability since these yarns are imported from Europe and may be backordered. Please allow a minimum of 10 business days for shipping to your location.
ALTERNATE YARN: Felted Tweed DK by Rowan (50% Merino Wool / 25% Alpaca / 25% Viscose; 50g/191yds): 10 (13, 19, 22) Skeins. Felted Tweed DK is quite comparable to Acadia in softness and sheen. The major difference is the Viscose content, an extruded fiber usually from bamboo. It has many of the properties of silk without the high cost. PRE-ORDER now available in all colors.
