It’s a cushy asymmetrical multi-color cancer-fighting brioche poncho knit in the round with minimal seaming and built-in extremely fashionable fringe
Celia is a 16-year-old friend fighting cancer. I wanted to make her a poncho because ponchos are in right now and we are stylish people. It came out pretty amazing. So, here’s the pattern. Thanks for the inspiration, Celia! 50% of the proceeds from the sales of this pattern will go to the cancer research organization of my choice. The other 50% will probably buy yarn.
This lofty, cozy brioche poncho is knit in the round using one color at a time. No carrying colors is needed. After knitting the whole thing as a tube, finish by creating the head opening with a three-needle bind off. A 10-stitch stockinette panel is dropped, cut and tied off to create fringe along one edge. Built-in fringe! No tying on hundreds of short strands!
In order to do this project you need the following skills, or a willingness to learn:
Brioche knitting, casting on, three-needle binding off, knitting in the round, being completely awesome.
We’d love it if you’d tag your project photos with #CeliaStrong #ponchostrong and of course, #teambrioche!
