These Poncho-like garments are made by knitting one piece of fabric, then grafting one edge and seaming another to create a neck opening and one armhole.
• Both samples (using Cotton Fine and Linen) are knitted from the same pattern with the same needle size.
• Linen yarn was knitted with single strand, and Cotton Fine was knitted with double strands held together.
• “Linen” top has nice drape, and The “Cotton Fine” top is light and airy.
