Knit Chevron Poncho

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton


18 sts + 24 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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


ssk (slip, slip, knit): Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and k them tog.


Chevron Pattern (multiple of 6 sts)

Row 2: *With CC, p 2; with MC, p 3; with CC, p 1; repeat from * across.

Sew side seams. Place 84 sts from holders on circular needle, and join to work in the round. Work in K 1, P 1 Rib for 6" [15 cm] or desired length. Bind off all sts. Weave in ends.


With CC, cut 11" [28 cm] lengths of yarn for bottom edge fringe, 4" [10 cm] lengths for turtleneck fringe.
