Lion Brand Wool-Ease®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with 2 strands of yarn held together. 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.

Metro Poncho Reviewed by Claire Earley on 2013-04-06 *****
Easy to knit and quite quick as uses double strands of yarn. When knitted up is quite heavy, keeps you nice and warm. The blending effect looks really nice and is simple to achieve. Would definitely knit again.
