This cabled poncho will quickly become a wardrobe favorite. It is knit flat in one piece, with the exception of the collar. The collar stitches are picked up around the neckline. The poncho is sewn together to form a faux button band, which is great for a "no gap" button band!
The button band can be situated off center to the right or to the left, or down the middle. Where it whatever way suits your fancy!
