Warm Winter Poncho

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 ¼ inches wide and 14 rows = 4 ½ inches long over St st (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

NOTES:


• Poncho is worked from side to side, sleeve edge to sleeve edge.
• Due to large number of sts, piece is worked back and forth in rows on circular needles.

BODY:
With 29" circular needles, cast on 98 (102, 106) sts. Do not join. Working back and forth in rows, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS) for 24 (25, 26)", end with a WS row.

Neck Opening: Next row (RS): K 49 (51, 53) sts (back); join second ball of yarn, dec 1 st, k to end (front). Working both sides at same time, work 1 row even. Rep neck dec for front on next 2 RS rows. – 46 (48, 50) sts for front; 49 (51, 53) sts for back. Work even until neck opening measures 7 1 /2", end with a WS row.

Next row (RS): K 49 (51, 53) sts (back); k into back and front of next st (inc 1 st), k to end (front). Rep inc on next 2 RS rows – 49 (51, 53) sts for front and back.

Next row (WS): P all 98 (102, 106) sts with one ball of yarn, joining front and back. Work even until piece measures 24 (25, 26)" from end of neck opening – piece measures approx 57 (59, 61)" from beg. Bind off all sts.

FINISHING:
Turtleneck:
With RS facing and 16" circular needles, pick up 60 sts evenly around neck opening. Join and work in rounds of k2, p2 rib for 4". Bind off all sts loosely in rib. With RS facing and crochet hook, work 1 row sc and 1 row reverse sc (working from left to right) around entire piece.

Reviewed by Pam Paulsen on 2013-11-12 ****
Love this pattern! Just made it for the first time - easy pattern, will definitely make again. My only complaint is that the pattern called for 11 skeins, and I only needed 9 (and I barely touched the 9th). I used the Medium size, but extended it due to my height.
