Lady at the Airport was inspired by the requests of two lovely neighbors! One of them had seen an elegant poncho worn by a lady passing her in the terminal at the airport. Thanks to you both for your support and encouragement with getting this design on the books!
This poncho is an innovative piece that is worked in two colors. It is knitted from the bottom up from the hem in one piece. The stitches for the cowl neck or optional crew neck are picked up around the neck edge after the body has been completed.
The “sleeves” fall just below the elbows, which helps to show off a lady’s figure, giving this poncho a very flattering look.
These instructions are easy to follow and require intermediate knitting skills such as short rows, grafting, and decreasing on both sides of the fabric.
