This pattern is the 8th design in my Snow Creations Collection.
These ponchos were designed to give the knitter many choices in colors, sizes, and embellishments. Knit an au naturel poncho OR personalize the poncho with your favorite applique or double stitch design. Both the front and back of the ponchos serve as your personal canvas with endless possibilities.
Release your creativity and produce your own fashion statement.
So much more than just a pattern....your purchase includes suggestions for embellishments, needle choices, stitch counts for every round so that you can quickly adapt your designs to fit the space, a snowflake design, and a list of online references.
The snowflake is a duplicate stitch and not knitted as part of the pattern. The snowflake chart is included.
There are two poncho patterns. One has a front panel and the other a stockinette panel. Since both are knit using super bulky yarn, large needles are used so that the garment does not become too heavy and so that the fabric will have a loose drape. Both ponchos are knit from the top down. The collar is knit with the smaller needles. The body is knit with the larger needles. If you want a denser and heavier fabric, these patterns can be knit with U.S. Size 15 as the smaller needle and U.S. Size 17 as the larger needle. Depending on the yarn that you use, the drape of the fabric will be different on the larger needles and you will need a different amount of yarn.
The amount of yarn you will need varies with the the pattern you select to knit. Amounts will range between 300 and 500 yards. More if you want longer or denser garments.
6.5 stitches x 8.5 rows = 4 inch x 4 inch gauge in stockinette using U.S. Size 19
