This cropped topper/poncho is knit in one piece with self finished edges. The knitting begins at the lower front, worked up and over the shoulders to the lower back. Stitches are cast off with a larger needle for the front neck and cast on loosely for the back neck. Due to the difference in row gauge, the Brioche section is shorter than the stockinette section, creating the shape of the poncho.
Width – 30 (38-42)“
