Free pattern Friday: Emilia July 17, 2015 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas


Chal/Poncho Emilia by Emilia Menéndez is a simple and lovely linen poncho-style wrap that makes an ideal take-everywhere summer accessory. Rowan Pure Linen creates a light and airy fabric with just enough heft for a little sun protection or for warmth in cool spaces (offices, movie theatres, patios, etc.).  Knit as a stockinette rectangle with a knit-as-you-go lace edging along one side.  At the end, the rectangle is folded in half and seamed partially along the plain edge, leaving enough space for your head.  At a loose 15 stitch gauge, this is a nice quick project!

Original pattern is in Spanish but an English translation has been posted to Ravelry by Gloriam.

Pattern calls for just 3 skeins of Rowan Pure Linen. Can’t make it into the store? Shop online here.
