Poncho’s are South American in origin, specifically from the Inca. It’s definition, according to Wikipedia, is an outer garment designed to keep the body warm. Poncho’s have been used by pre-Hispanic Native Americans in the areas that are now Peru and Bolivia. It is basically a blanket or a large sheet of fabric with an opening for the head.
Today it is used by the US army as a rain garment that can cover everything underneath and keep it dry. It has also become a fashion item and many patterns are designed that originate from the poncho.
You need a knitting kit if you don’t already have one.
These are signature designs from Annie’s.
