A knit-look is achieved with the use of a bigger hook than is usually used for thread, and from the unique combination of stitches. This poncho looks good on, and fits a wide range of bust sizes and body shapes. Pattern can also be easily modified to a different size.
It is best to make a gauge swatch first, before making a wearable.
