Copenhagen – Fashionable Belted Poncho in Cashmere Luxury

I love ponchos, that’s no secret, and when it can be combined with

cables and chunky needles, it doesn’t get much better than this.

When the most delicious new yarn from Lana Grossa arrives, I immediately see new ponchos. Copenhagen is my take on a belted poncho that is functional and fashionable at the same time.

The pattern is a simple structured pattern that I have used on both the front and back, and on the front I have added a large and beautiful cable. The poncho is knitted in 2 pieces and then sewn together at the shoulders and then picked up stitches for the neck. It has a slightly rounded hem, a high neck and I’ve knitted a thick horse stitch for a belt.

The lovely yarn is usually for size 9, but I made the poncho on size 8, both because I think it looks best on size 8, but also to get more density in the knit, so it could be used as outerwear.

Wear it as a cozy poncho or layer it over a leather jacket in the transition between seasons and you’ll be able to stay warm and fashionable at the same time.

I’ve made it in 2 sizes, both onesize and queen size, but it’s super easy to make both bigger and smaller.

For the Copenhagen Poncho, I used Lala Berlin Lovely, which is a thick, extremely soft yarn made in a collaboration between Lala Berlin and Lana Grossa. In my opinion, this is a fantastic collaboration that has resulted in some super delicious yarns.
