“March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.”
This year is living up to that classic quote in spades. Monday it was sunny and 65 F, by Wednesday I was looking out the window at snow flurries.
What does that mean for our knitting and crocheting? Transition garments!
The Aruba 2-Point Poncho by Nancy Nagle fits the bill.
Add it to your Ravelry queue.
This pattern will be good for an intermediate or advanced beginner knitter.
The pattern is worked in the round, top down, and is finished with an I-Cord edge. There are a lot of good techniques to practice in one pattern!
You can also expect it to work up quickly on US15 needles.
As you can see from the pictures, there are a few different ways to wear it.
Aruba is a new spring yarn from the Euro Yarns brand. It is available in 10 self striping colors. This tape style yarn has no animal fiber, so it’s great for people who might be allergic to wool.
Ease yourself out of your winter coat and into warmer weather with this pretty poncho!

If ponchos aren’t your style, check out the pretty drop-stitch Aruba Ribbon Wrap instead.
For a real change of pace, check out the crocheted Aruba Flower Bag.
How cute is that for a summer purse?
Find a local yarn store near you that stocks Aruba yarn.
