Style-Savvy Poncho

Lion Brand® Jiffy®


12 stitches = 4" (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



Row 1 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * ch 2, skip next 2 ch, 1 sc in next ch, repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn.

Row 2 1 dc in first sc, * 3 dc in next sc, repeat from * across to within last sc, end 2 dc in last sc, Ch 1, turn.

Row 3 1 sc in first dc, * ch 2, 1 sc in 2nd dc of next 3-dc group, repeat from * across, end ch 2, 1 sc in turning chain. Ch 3, turn.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 for pattern.


Ch 121.

Row 1 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * ch 2, skip next 2 ch, 1 sc in next ch, repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn. Work Pattern Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures approximately 17 ˝" from beg, ending with pattern Row 3.

Shape Neck

Mark center 18 sts.

First Side Work pattern to first marker – 51 sts. Ch 1, turn. Continue in pattern on these sts only for 6", ending with pattern Row 3. Fasten off.

Second Side Skip center 18 sts for neck, join yarn with slip st in next st, begin with pattern Row 2, work second side – 51 sts for 6" to correspond to first side, ending with pattern Row 3. Fasten off.

Neck Joining Row With RS facing and continuing in pattern, work across first side, ch 18 for neck, then work across second side. Continue in pattern across 120 sts for 17 ˝" more. Fasten off.


Lower Edging

With RS facing, join yarn in any corner with a slip st, then work 104 sc evenly along each side working 3 sc in each corner. Work in sc for 4", working through back loop of each st every round and working 3 sc in each corner. Fasten off. Neck Edging

With RS facing, join yarn with a slip st in any corner and work 64 sc evenly spaced around neck edge. Work in sc, working through back loop of each st on every round, dec 4 sts evenly spaced on next round, then 4 sts every other round twice, then 4 sts every round twice – 44 sts remain. Work even in sc for 6 more rounds, working through back loop of each st on every round. Fasten off.

Beautiful pattern stitch Reviewed by Meryl Solar on 2013-12-19 *****
I just finished this using Lion's Amazing ( 9 skeins Constellation) and Moonlight Mohair (5 skeins Purple Mountains) to add a little sparkle and it's my new favorite poncho! I just made a few changes to the pattern as follows:
- 23" per side instead of 17 1/2",
- for neck and Bottom edging I used alternating FPDC and BPDC stiches instead of back loop SC to give it a more finished/ribbed look.
- Also only decreased neck down to 55 stitches instead of 44 to allow for fatter FP/BP stitches.
(uploading pics). It's so easy and quick. Saving to my favorites!
