I'm swatching to make a poncho. Yes, I know they are not so popular, but my house is always cold. When guests come over they wrap themselves in blankets or coats. So I have a grand plan to knit tons of house ponchos for people to wear when they come over.
The one on the left is knitted on size 13 needles and the one on the right with size 11. I'm going to go with 11's, cause it's a little tighter and I think would hold up better than a looser knit.
