Cavalry Poncho - The front and back are knit separately with a few short rows at the shoulder to create a gentle slope. Shoulders are joined with a 3-needle bind off for a smooth finish. Neckline is picked up and knit after the shoulders are joined. Finally, you pick up and knit the edge stitches along the sides of the poncho.
The finishing touches are the buttons, 8 decorative ones for the front, and 4 more basic are needed for the sides. There are 2 sizes, S/M, and L/XL.
Yarn used should be soft and drapey. I like Knit Picks Shine & Berroco Remix for example.
17 sts, & 22 rows = 4 inch
in Stst with size 9 needle.

I am a hand knitter, crocheter, machine knitter, and have recently begun using a circular sock machine (csm). I manufacture some hard-to find knitting accessories such as the multiple yarn twister/winder, machine knitters GARTER BARS, mini garter bars, and needle stoppers. I also write and sell CUT-SEW-FELT Patterns using recycled sweaters, as well as hand-knitting & crochet patterns.
I LOVE to hand knit most of all. Easy projects are my game as we travel quite a bit and I love to knit no-brainers. oh yeah, and as you can see by my patterns.....I am the slipper Queen!
