Vertical-Stripe Poncho: Woman's Version

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®


7 dc + 4 rows = 4" [10 cm].

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


Starting at outer edge, with A, ch 89.
Row 1 (RS) Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; turn – 88 sc.
Rows 2-5 Ch 1, sc in back loop of each sc across; turn.
Row 6 Ch 3, dc in back loop of each sc across. Fasten off.
Row 7 With RS facing, join B in first dc, ch 3, dc in each dc across. Fasten off.
Rows 8-23 Repeat Row 7, working in the following color sequence:
2 rows C
3 rows A
4 rows B
2 rows C
1 row A
2 rows B
2 rows C
Fasten off.


Work as for Right Side in the following color sequence:
6 rows C
1 row A
2 rows B
3 rows C
4 rows A
2 rows B
1 row C
2 rows A
2 rows B
Fasten off.


With RS of Right and Left Sides facing, matching stitches across last row of each side, using large-eyed, blunt needle and matching yarn, sew sides together up first 16" [40.5 cm] of front. In same manner, sew back seam up last 16" [40.5 cm], leaving center 18" [45.5 cm] open for neck opening.

Vertical-Stripe Poncho: Woman's Version Reviewed by Heidi Kleyn on 2011-01-24 ****
For all you crocheters out there. I just made one like this. (my own pattern) All I did was cast on 70 and crocheted it all with a half double hdc. Color changed when I wanted to. I also used different yarns. I used thicker yarns. I used a K 6.5mm hook. For the neck when you get to the half way point (you will want to make it like a square so you can have a pointy end in front - if you want)all you need to do is when you get to stitch number 25 (start on 26) chain 20 (loosely) for the neck hole and attach with a slip stitch. Then when you turn you keep doing a half double hdc. I am sure you could make this with any stitch you want single, half or double. I hope this helps and is not confusing.
