The Little River is a tributary of the Peconic River which originates in the bogs and wetlands near Brookhaven National Laboratory and flows eastward to the Peconic Bay. It is a slow-moving river, making it ideal for peaceful days observing the Pine Barrens from a canoe or kayak. The pattern of this lacy poncho is like the gentle swirling flow of the Little River. It is a quick knit on a 10 ½ needle and is simply a rectangle with one seam to create the shape. Although it looks like a cable pattern, the effect is achieved by double decreases – no cable needle required!
