Inspired by the American Southwest, the summer issue of Interweave Knits is packed with 16 modern, appealing, and knittable designs.
My contribution to the magazine falls into the High Desert Lace story, with wearable, breezy, lacy, and bohemian-inspired garments that you can wear in the blazing summer sun: Winona Poncho.
Winona is a tiny village located along historic Route 66 in northwestern Arizona. The area has been inhabited for ages—first by Native Americans, then by European settlers—and the Winona Poncho incorporates artistic influences from the different cultures that have populated the area. The poncho is worked in one piece from side to side in an allover wave lace pattern that is worked on both right- and wrong-side rows. The fringe adds the final touch to this bohemian-inspired summer poncho.
The pattern is available for individual download or as part of the magazine from the Interweave website, here.
