Cleo Skirt/Poncho Knitting pattern
Cleo is a fabulous, versatile garment that can be worn in two ways – as a skirt or as a poncho (with the ribbing making the roll neck). Cleo is really interesting to make as it includes several techniques such as circular knitting, ribbing, cabling and short row shaping. With only one seam to finish and the border integrated into each row, Cleo is easy to finish.
See Laura’s blog from Purl About Town about how she embarked on knitting Cleo and here she is modelling all 3 ways of wearing her. We think you’ll agree she looks pretty pleased with it!
