Side Tie Poncho - hand knit
This fabulous poncho can be worn year round! I like it for cool spring or cool summer nights as well as in the fall and winter.
The Poncho is knit using a larger needle (size 10) and worsted weight yarn. It has a nice, loose, airy feel to it. I prefer to knit this with some kind of a cotton or cotton blend as I like the way it drapes.
Knit from the top down, you will start with a circular needle and knit in the round, later you will knit back and forth on the front and back pieces. There are no seams and because the neck has a natural roll to it, there is no ribbing to knit either. It is a rather mindless knit, great for car rides, waiting at the doctors office, etc. The ties on the sides, just under the sleeves, end up making the poncho appear to have a little shaping, which is nice. This poncho is meant to be roomy - like any poncho. There are 2 sizes: Sm/Med = 46” wide x 27.75” long. LG = 48” wide x 28.25” long.
Stitches used are: Knit, purl, ssk, ssp, sl-2, psso, k2tog, p2tog, kfb. Skill level - I would say easy to intermediate.
As with all of my patterns feel free to make and sell as many as you like. Please note this purchase is a PDF file that you will be able to download after purchasing. There will be no physical copy mailed to you.
