Cleo Skirt/Poncho Knitting Pattern
Visit www.karihelenerane.com for more!
Cleo is a fabulous, versatile garment that can be worn in a variety of ways – as a skirt; as a poncho (with the ribbing making the roll neck), or as a “boob-tube” dress (accessorised with a belt). Cleo is really interesting to make as it includes several techniques such as circular knitting, ribbing, cabling and short row shaping. There is only one seam to finish and the border is incorporated as you knit. The rib is picked up at the end and worked up making the length of the waist rib adjustable.
