Hooded Poncho

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8.5 sts + 12 rows = 4 inches [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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

PONCHO

BACK

With smaller needles and A, cast on 92 sts. Work in garter st (knit every row) for 6 rows. Changing to larger needles, work first and last 5 sts in garter st and center sts in St st. Work even until piece measures 12 inches [30.5 cm] from beg. Change to C and work even for 10 rows. Change to B and work even until piece measures 23 inches [58.5 cm]. Placing center 20 sts on holder, bind off remaining sts.

FRONT

Work as for Back until piece measures 20½ inches [52 cm], ending with a WS row.

Next row (RS) Work 40 sts, place center 12 sts on holder, join 2nd ball of yarn and work even to end – 40 sts each side.

Cont to work both sides at same time, bind off 2 sts from each neck edge twice – 36 sts each side. Work even until piece measures same length as Back. Bind off all sts.

FINISHING

Sew shoulder seams. With RS facing, circular needles, and B, and starting at left shoulder, pick up and knit 24 sts around Front neck, including 12 sts from holder, and 20 sts from Back neck holder – 44 sts. Join to work in rounds.

Rnd 1 Purl.

Rnd 2 Knit.

Rnd 3 Purl.

Bind off all sts loosely in knit.

HOOD (optional)

With RS facing, smaller needles, and B, and beginning at right shoulder edge, pick up and knit 40 sts along Back neck (2 sts in each stitch).

Row 1 (WS) K 5, p 30, k 5.

Change to larger needles.

Row 2 (RS) Knit.

Work even as established, working first and last 5 sts in garter st and center sts in St st until piece measures 14 inches [35.5 cm]. Bind off all sts. Fold hood in half so that garter edges meet. Sew seam along bound-off edge.

I am making this poncho. great pattern! Am almost done. Instead of making a hood, I made a cowl. Will definitely make another! Thanks Lion Brand!
