I don’t generally go in for ponchos, so was surprised when this pattern caught my eye. I love the cables, drapy-ness, and color, and it looks like the back and front can be sewn part way up to make a sort of loose pullover. Onto the TBK list it goes!
The recommended yarn is Katia Merino Baby, which is sport weight and comes in truly lovely colors. Oh, I see that the beautiful mulberry shade is out of stock on the web site. Will either have to wait or find it somewhere else. The cost is $6.50 a ball. Size medium requires 9 to 10 balls. Needle size 6 (US). The pattern can be downloaded here .
