Designer Feature: Mofu Poncho by Mary Anne Benedetto

You may remember Mary Anne Benedetto from her awesome design using The Fibre Co. Cumbria featured in the Fall 2016 Twist Collective, Carnelian. The Mofu Poncho, her latest design featured in knit.wear Fall/Winter 2016, is filled with the unique details and interesting construction we’ve come to expect from her as a designer.

The pattern features a picot hem, interesting stitch patterning, cosy turtleneck, and fitted ribbed cuffs, making the garment both practical and easy to wear.

I am always on the lookout for comfortable layering pieces that go beyond a traditional sweater or vest. This poncho definitely fits the bill!
