Man's Poncho

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

8 sts + 13 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (knit on right side, purl on wrong side).

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:

This poncho is made of 2 rectangles worked sideways so the stripes run horizontally on the body. The rectangles are sewn together at the shoulders of the garment. Garment can also be worn so stripes are vertical.


PONCHO

RIGHT SIDE

With A, cast on 124 sts. Knit 11 rows. Work 2 rows in St st. Continue with St st in the following color sequence:

4 rows B
6 rows C
10 rows A
14 rows B
8 rows C
4 rows A
8 rows B
6 rows C

Bind off all sts with C.

LEFT SIDE

With C, cast on 124 sts. Knit 11 rows. Change to St st and work in the following color sequence:

2 rows C
4 rows A
6 rows B
10 rows C
14 rows A
8 rows B
4 rows C
8 rows A
6 rows B

Bind off all sts with B.

FINISHING

Place pieces with wrong sides together, matching cast on and bound off edges. Sew pieces together with a running stitch just below the bound off edge so the edges form a ridge on the outside of the work. Sew for 22" [56 cm], starting at one edge. Fasten off. Sew second seam starting at the other edge for 22" [56 cm], leaving 18" [45.5 cm] in the center open for the neck opening. Weave in ends.
