Camden Hills Poncho


The Camden Hills Poncho was originally designed and published by Berroco as part of their Portfolio volumne 4. 

This is a seamless poncho/oversized sweater vest using Berroco’s Ultra Wool yarn. Camden Hills Poncho is an easy knit featuring an eyelet stitch pattern along the bottom of the Front and a hi/lo split hemline. Fun to knit and cozy to wear! The eyelet stitch pattern is written out in the instructions but there is also a chart if you prefer.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
