Wayfarer Poncho

Ships next business day

If you would prefer a printed copy then add this pattern to your cart along with a yarn purchase and we will include one in your shipment (maximum of 1 printed pattern per skein of yarn purchased).

The Wayfarer Poncho is a light and cozy poncho that shows off a gradient of colors from three different skeins. Switch up the color combinations to make a subtler (or bolder!) look. With a higher back, the Wayfarer Poncho won’t accidentally be pulled or stretched when sitting, while the longer front provides warmth and comfort.
