Not quite a poncho, not quite a sweater, Ilga Leja's In The Piazza hybrid works as both. Easy to pull over your head and slip on, it is perfect knitwear for cooler days.
Worked in a simple geometric shape, this design uses wide ribs that flow into the Basketweave Stitch Pattern of the main body. Short rows shape the shoulders and a 3-needle bind-off joins the front to the back so that seaming is kept to a minimum.
