Autumn Sky Poncho - FREE Pattern with Mammoth Yarn!

Looking for a quick-knit outerwear piece that doesn't stifle you with heat? The Autumn Sky Poncho is ideal for cool mornings and evenings when you just need a little extra warmth but don't need a heavy coat, and the trim elbow-length design gives you the freedom to move your arms without getting lost in the poncho. Knit in Dream in Color's Mammoth yarn, this is a yummy next-to-skin soft project that you'll wear year after year.

There are a couple of fiddly bits to this project, but most of it's just knitting round and round - a great project for TV watching or slow meetings!  First, you make the collar in one broad braided cable panel. From there, pick up stitches around one side of the collar and work your way down. The simple yarn-over increases create a spiral detail in eyelets, and there's no seam in the fabric except at the collar join.

Best of all, at just 700 bulky yards this poncho will knit up fast and uses just six skeins of Mammoth yarn.

Bonus:  All Dream in Color yarn, including Mammoth, is on sale at 20% off for the month of October!

And Mammoth is mammoth - a nice, fat bulky yarn that's ideal for quick-knit hats, scarves, cowls, sweaters and, obviously . . . ponchos!  The yarn is 100% extra fine raised-in-the-US wool that's been spun and dyed in the U.S. as well.  You have over 20 colors to choose from in subtlety variegated colors to create interest without being outrageous.

Double Bonus:  The Autumn Sky Poncho pattern is FREE with the purchase of Mammoth yarn!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
