Magic Tweed Poncho

Lion Brand® Magic Stripes - Babysoft®

GAUGE:

1 repeat = 4" (10 cm) and 2 rows = approximately 131⁄44"(4.5 cm) in Open Fan Pattern with 1 strand each MC and CC held together. Gauge is a bit relaxed for this weight yarn. For laciest effect do not work too tightly.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Base ch/sc (Note This method creates a base chain and foundation row of sc at the same time: easy, sturdy and elastic, especially useful for necklines and waistlines.) Start with a slip knot, ch 2, insert hook in 2nd ch from hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops – 1 single crochet with its own chain at bottom. Work next stitch under loops of that chain. Insert hook under 2 loops at bottom of the previous stitch, draw up a loop, yo and draw through 1 loop, yo and draw through 2 loops. Repeat for length of foundation.

Open Fan Pattern This pattern is completed over two rows: a WS row of ch-spaces and a RS row of five-spoked fans.

Fan (Tr, ch 2, tr, ch 2, tr, ch 2, tr, ch 2, tr) in same st.
Corner-V (CV) (Tr, ch 4, tr) in same st.
Scallop (Slip st, ch 3, dc) in same st.

NOTES:

  1. Poncho is worked in joined rounds back and forth around from the neck down, using 1 strand of MC held together with 1 strand of CC.
  2. 2.A row of increases in pattern creates some shoulder room. Continued increases in pattern at the front and back centers make points. Neck and lower edges are finished in a simple scallop edging.

Thanks for the updates Karen! I agree this is a very pretty poncho and I like the way yours worked up. I'm going to try it and see how it turne out.
