Image of Cozy Hooded Poncho

Cables and faux fur trim make this capelet a great fall accessory. Please note: While this poncho is pictured on a child, the sizes are large enough to be worn as a cropped capelet by an adult (click through for a photo).

Cozy Hooded Poncho

Lion Brand« Heartland - Romance®

GAUGE:

20 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Cable Pattern with A.
15 sts + 22 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in Rev St st worked in the rnd (p every rnd) with A.
12 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in Rev St st worked in the rnd with B.

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:

3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k3 then k3 from cable needle.
kfb (knit in front and back)Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st - 1 st increased.

NOTES:

1. The Lower Band is worked as a flat strip, working back and forth in rows on the circular needle. Ends of strip are seamed to make a ring, then sts are picked up along one long edge of the Band for the Poncho.
2. A cable pattern is worked on the Lower Band, Poncho, front band and hood. If desired, stitch markers can be used to highlight those sts.
3. Poncho is worked in the round, then divided at neck and worked back and forth in rows.
4. After shaping at top of Poncho has been completed, the remaining sts are used to make the front band.
5. Sts are picked up along the edge of the front band to make the hood.
6. Some sections of the Poncho include selvedge sts. These are sts that create an edge for seaming pieces together.



 

PONCHO
Lower Band
Note:
Lower Band is worked back and forth on a circular needle in rows, as if working on straight needles.
With A, cast on 15 sts.
Row 1: K2, p1, work Row 1 of Cable patt I over next 9 sts, p1, k2.
Row 2: K1, p1, k1, work next row of Cable patt I to next marker, k1, p1, k1.
Row 3: K2, p1, work next row of Cable patt I to next marker, p1, k2.
Rep Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures about 44 (48, 52, 56) in. (112 (122, 132, 142) cm) from beg.
Bind off.
Seam cast on end of Band to bound off end of Band to make a ring.

Poncho
Along one long edge of Band, measure about 11 (12, 13, 14) in. (28 (30.5, 33, 35.5) cm) from seam and place a marker.
Note:To work the next section, you will be picking up sts evenly spaced across the marked edge of Band. An easy way to do this is to divide the edge into halves, then quarters, etc - using pins or scraps of yarn to mark the sections. Now, simply pick up and k sts within each of the sections - for example, for the smallest size you will need to pick up and k 132 sts. If you first divide the long edge of the Band into 8 equal size sections, you should pick up and k 16 sts evenly spaced across sections 1, 3, 5 and 7 and 17 sts evenly spaced across sections 2, 4, 6 and 8 for a total of 132 sts.

From RS with B and beg at marker, pick up and k132 (144, 156, 168) sts evenly spaced along long, marked edge of Band. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
Work in Rev St st worked in the rnd (p every rnd) for 7 rnds.
Change to A.
Next Rnd: With A, k11 (12, 13, 14), *kfb, k1; rep to last 11 (12, 13, 14) sts, kfb, k to end of rnd - 187 (204, 221, 238) sts at the end of this rnd.
Next Rnd: *Work Rnd 1 of Cable patt II over 9 sts, p8; rep from * around.
Next Rnd: *Work next rnd of Cable patt II over 9 sts, p8; rep from * around.
Rep last rnd until piece measures about 12 (12 1/2, 13, 13 1/2) in. (30.5 (32, 33, 34.5) cm) from pick up rnd, ending with a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8.
Note: Ending with a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8 means that the last rnd you work should be a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8.
Divide for Neck
Note:
The remainder of Poncho will be worked back and forth in rows on circular needle.
If you ended with a Rnd 4 above, you should beg Next Row with Row 5 of Cable patt I.
If you ended with a Rnd 8 above, beg Next Row with Row 1 of Cable patt I.
