Split Collar Poncho: Homespun Version

Lion Brand® Homespun®


12 sts + 16 rows = 4" [10 cm] in Stockinette stitch (k on RS, p on WS). 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

Split Collar Poncho: Homespun Version Reviewed by EVELYN R CHRISTEN on 2013-08-27 *****
I have lost count of how many of these that I have made for my granddaughter, daughter and many of her friends. I just finished one for my daughter that was to replace one she had that she gave to her mother-in-law. Everyone loves them. Also made some for myself. Would like to try the pattern in the mohair as it will be a little more lightweight. I always use circular needles on anything I make. So much easier.
