Image of Town & Country Poncho

The shorter length and airy stitch combine to give this poncho a fresh look. Dress it up or dress it down just by changing the color of the yarn.

Town & Country Poncho

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


8 sts + 8 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in half double crochet

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.
