Quick Overview

SKEINO's CARACARA PONCHO is an easy project using our Shimmer yarn, 60% Fine Merino and 40% Silk.

The name is inspired by the Caracara, a rare falcon-like bird found across the Americas. In this knitting kit the skeins are hand painted in 5 different shades in different colorways. The yarn is soft and the Silk gives the Poncho a luxurious feel and look.

The ribbed neck starts with the lightest color and the Poncho ends with the darkest color. Each skein is completely knitted up for a maximum length. Starting at the neck the poncho is worked in the round becoming wider and wider through increases every fourth row. This provides a nice fit that is not so tight. The body part repeat is 6 rows Stockinette Stitch and one Garter Stitch Ridge.

One Skein has 273 yards (250 meters) of yarn, the project has 1365 yards (1250 meters).

If you are a beginner this could be your first hand knitted garment. What a treat!


The shown colorway PARSIFAL has been sold out, but the colorways FOAMING SEA or ATLANTIC are similar.
