Specs & Details
This popover—a cross between a poncho and a wrap—celebrates Olga’s fascination with positive and negative space. Knitting the diamonds, and joining them to each other as you go, is so satisfying.
The popover is worked in columns of diamond motifs that are joined as you go. Stitches are cast on for the entire bottom edge, then the first column of 25 stitches is worked to the end while the remaining cast-on stitches are left out of work.
Each subsequent column is worked in a similar manner, but the first stitch at the widest point of each motif is joined to a motif in the previous column. Two motifs in the center of the piece are left unjoined to create a neck opening.
