Fabulist Serape


Is it a shawl? A poncho? A serape? Whatever you call it, it’s comfy and fun to wear. Wrap it around you or let it hang and drape.

This simple project uses garter and net stitches to create a fun design that is easy to make. The two front “flaps” are knit separately and then joined together to knit the back in one piece.

This serape is knit from end to end with a fingering weight yarn in four colours. This garment has one size and no visible seams.
