Take this poncho pattern from issue 85 on your summer holiday and you could be modelling your new top by the end of the week. An airy stitch design makes it an über-quick hook, and a perfect poolside layer.
Worked in one piece, then folded and joined, the poncho shape is also simple enough for a first-garment make. Finish it off with the fringing, or skip this embellishment if you prefer.
