We love to mix things up with a fun, self-patterning yarn. Especially great for unique winter accessories, Lang Yarns Bergen is a light, airy, bulky weight yarn that knits up quickly into cozy scarves, cowls, hat & mittens. It is also wonderful for statement making ponchos & pullovers.

Spun with superfine alpaca & a touch of nylon, the yarn possesses a chain construction to help knits maintain shape. The construction keeps the yarn lightweight & fluffy for garments that do not feel heavy to wear.

The Geode Poncho (PTO-043_07) is one our favorite pieces from the collection. So comfortable to wear, the poncho creates warmth while giving room to move freely. The yarn is patterned to create a self-striping, dappled design that looks lovely in simple stitch patterns.

The poncho is knit flat in two pieces (front & back) which are comprised of mostly stockinette stitch with a ribbed bottom edge. There are two short shoulder seams & then the ribbed turtleneck is picked up & knit in the round. There is a button on each side to create loose “armholes.”

Here is what you will need to knit the poncho:

Size: S–M / L–XL

Garment measurements: Bust 55“/ 61½“, Length 26¾“

Yarn: 8/ 10 balls of Lang Yarns Bergen (sample in color 3 Rose Caramel)

Needles: Size US 10.5 & 11, 32” circular needles (knit flat) + Size US 10.5, 16” or 24” circular (turtleneck knit in the round)

Notions: Two 1” buttons
