The Lituma Poncho pattern was designed by Beatriz Rubio. Our sample was knit in Miss Babs Yowza in the Mahi-Mahi colorway.
The Lituma Poncho is worked top-down, completely seamlessly and in-the-round, with a generous turtleneck, in a combination of a leaf motif lace and bobbles pattern. The increases, decreases and yarn overs of the lace pattern, as well as the bobbles, are only worked on odd rounds, making every even round a rest.
Instructions are both charted and written for your convenience and include options for a modern-style poncho with sleeves as well as a long sleeveless version.
Lituma is a fictional character created by Nobel prize-winning Peruvian author Mario Vargas Llosa. He appears as the protagonist in many novels, working as a detective.
You'll need 3-5 skeins of Yowza, depending on your size, to complete this project. Choose the original colorway below − or try another color!
The Lituma Poncho pattern is available on Ravelry. All patterns are sold separately and not included with the purchase of yarn.
