The Hvile Poncho is found in the Hygge Collection of Knitscene Winter 2017 and is adorned with beautiful cables with an asymmetrical shoulder. The bulky yarn has a bit of heathering and provides extra warmth for those cold winter days. This poncho is worked back and forth in one piece and seamed. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
Kit includes Knitscene Winter 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn.
