Bold geometric motifs reminiscent of Pendleton wool blankets give this Shelter poncho lasting appeal. Worked from charts in textured knit, purl, and slipped stitches, Nomad begins with shoulder shaping and is worked downward to the center of the front and back. Consecutive bands of twisted stitches create a horizontal braid effect to divide the motifs. The lower pieces are knit from the hem up and joined to form a decorative ridge. This light, warm garment can be pivoted 90 degrees and worn with the side ribbing as the front hem for an alternate look.
