Fisherman's Poncho

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8.5 sts + 13 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS) on larger 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.

Fringe
Cut lengths of yarn approximately 30 inches [76 cm] long. Fold each strand in half and attach along bottom edge approximately 1¾ inches [4.5 cm] apart by pulling the fold through the fabric, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop and pull to tighten. After all fringe is attached, knot one strand of each fringe with its neighbor to the left, and the other strand with its neighbor to the right. Work a second row of knots, tying one strand from each knot with its neighbor to the left, and the other strand with its neighbor to the right. This forms a knot-work lattice in the fringe. Trim to desired length.
