Hooded Poncho

Lion Brand« Tweed Stripes®

GAUGE:

15 sts + 21 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

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:

M1 (make 1) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Knit this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
M1P (make 1 st as if to purl) An increase worked by lifting the horizontal thread lying between the needles and placing it onto the left needle. Purl this new stitch through the back loop - 1 st increased.
skp Slip 1 as if to knit, knit 1, pass slip stitch over knit stitch - 1 st decreased.

 

PATTERN STITCHES
Note:
In both the Body Rib and the Rib Inset patterns, all of the WS rows are k the knit sts and p the purl sts. The rows are spelled out in more detail below but if you can 'read' your knitting you may find that you don't have to refer to the written instructions.

FINISHING
Sew base of buttonband under base of buttonhole band. Sew buttons opposite buttonholes. Place markers on lower edge of front and back, 9 (11) in. (23 (28) cm) on each side of the center seam.
Note: This will create a 36 (44) in. (91.5 (112) cm) hip opening. You may adjust the hip measurement as follows - for a narrower hip opening, place markers closer to center seam, for a broader hip opening place markers further from center seam. Beg at markers and sewing straight up towards top of poncho, sew front and back together for 3 in. (7.5 cm). Weave in ends.
