Scarf Ponchette

Lion Brand® Color Waves (old) - Fun Fur®


12 stitches + 20 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). 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


This pattern works well with Lion Bouclé, Homespun, Color Waves, Fancy Fur, Wool-Ease Chunky, Landscapes, or Polarspun. Use whatever size needle gives you a gauge of 12 stitches = 4 inches (10 cm). Row gauge will determine whether you need more (more rows) or less (less rows) yarn.

PONCHETTE – Make 2 rectangles (each 13 inches wide x 28 inches long)

Garter Stitch Version

With MC, cast on 39 stitches. Knit all rows until piece measures 28 inches from beginning. Bind off all stitches.

Stockinette Stitch Version

With MC, cast on 39 stitches. Knit 1 row, purl 1 row. Repeat last 2 rows until piece measures 28 inches from beginning. Bind off all stitches.


Sew end of one scarf to side of the other as per diagram. Fold, matching points A and B, and sew together. With crochet hook and 1 strand each of CC1 and CC2 held together, single crochet evenly around neck and bottom of Ponchette. Weave in ends.

Scarf Ponchette Reviewed by Margie Drake on 2012-06-18 *****
I like this pattern because it is really easy, just knitting and purling. It turned out that the fringe was very easy to do. I don't crochet, but I was able to do the single crochet stitch required with no problem. The yarn, Color Waves, used in the pattern has been discontinued; so I used Homespun yarn instead. I used different colors of yarn from those used in the pattern. I used Homespun yarn in the color 'Barrington' for the body. I had to improvise to get complimentary colors for the fringe. I did the fringe in Fun Fur yarn in 'Orchid' paired with a type of yarn similar to Fun Fur, but made by another company. It was a really deep wine color. The finished ponchette looked very cute. I am making the ponchette a second time using Homespun yarn in the color 'Windsor' and Fun Fur yarn in 'Indigo' and 'Orchid' for the fringe.
