Do you have a completed project that you wear over and over? This poncho knit pattern is that for me. Because of our climate here in South Texas, we don't have to wear heavy coats very often so I am always looking for something in between being too cold and sweating. The Spincycle Poncho is the perfect cover.
This is a great beginner knit too and is a free Ravelry download. I used a worsted handspun looking yarn that I scored at Tuesday Morning ages ago. Give it a try!
