Brookside is a light, elegant cashmere poncho for all seasons knit in our fingering weight yarn. Designed by Tayler Harris, the poncho features color stripes that cross textural ribbing, all sitting on the diagonal when worn. Knit as a rectangle, the poncho is formed by a short shoulder seam. This is the first pattern in our series, Coloring with Cashmere.

If you're not sure which size kit to purchase, you might "try on" each poncho size by draping fabric that you have on hand in the finished dimensions. While the drape between the 'try on' fabric and the knitted poncho will be different, it still should give you a good idea of how you'd like your poncho to fit so you know which kit to order.
