Margo Poncho


Margo Poncho uses aran/bulky-weight yarn and features buttoned sides and faux cable stitch details on the front and back that is fun and interesting to knit (they look similar to cables but are actually created with just slipped stitches and yarn overs). The back piece is longer than the front, creating a more modern silhouette.

Only 2 sizes are given as each size will fit many bust measurements due to the oversized fit. The S/M size will typically fit a bust range of 32-42” and the L/XL size will fit a bust range of 43-52”. However, if you are in the L/XL range but prefer a less oversized fit, then knit the S/M size.
