Wee Poncho

Lion Brand® Color Waves - Lion® Suede


11 sts + 24 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Garter st (knit every row) with A. 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

PANEL – Make 2
With A, cast on 24 sts. Work in Garter st for 112 rows. Bind off.

With crochet hook and B, and following diagram, join Panels together with sc. With B, work a row of sc along 24th Garter ridges to outline a square on Front and Back. With B, work sc around neck and lower edges. Weave in ends.

Cut 60 lengths each 6" [15 cm] of B. Using 10 strands for each Tassel, fold in half to form a loop. Insert crochet hook at Front point of Poncho and draw loop through. Draw ends of Tassel through loop and tighten. Work a 2nd Tassel at Back point of Poncho. Following diagram, work 4 additional Tassels.

Tie ribbon into a bow and sew to neckline at center front.
