Forsythia Top Pattern in Manos Silk Blend

Availability: In stock (3)

This is a printed paper pattern of the Forsythia Pattern by Elizabeth Smith knit in Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend. 

Forsythia uses asymmetrical visual details and an interesting hi/low split hem construction to give the classic poncho a modern twist. The simple, seamless construction is paired with short-row-shaped shoulders for a flattering fit that creates a garment that can be worn either with more ease for a poncho-like fit, or less ease for a more sweater-vest fit.

  • Length: 26 (27, 28, 29)” at center back, and 2¾” less at center front
