Poncho with Fur Collar

Lion Brand® Homespun® - Fun Fur®

GAUGE:

12 sts + 18 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS) with MC on larger needles.
14 sts + 18 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in knit 2, purl 2 rib with one strand each MC and CC held tog on smaller needles. 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.

Poncho with Fur Collar Reviewed by Irene Munro on 2010-06-20 *
I made this poncho to the point of adding on the collar.I found the neck was way to small, so I stopped. I was quite disapointed, will look for another pattern asI really like this wool.
