This simple poncho, knit in Berroco Ultra® Alpaca Fine, begins at the bottom with the lace panel worked back and forth. Then knitting is joined in the round to form the body and decrease to the shoulders before working the lace pattern on the wrong side (so that it folds down to show the right side when worn). The bottom lace edge is sewn up in finishing (but the top edge is left open for that notched detail).
