The Mistborn Poncho combines cabled panels and round yoke increases with a relaxed generous fit to add warm layering for any outfit. The Mistborn Poncho is worked top-down. Pattern includes larger cable panels on each of the back and front and smaller complementary cables along the length of each of the sleeve sections. I-cord edging on the neck and bottom mirrors parts of the cable panels. Cables are charted only. Named Mistborn because the cables remind me of the mists winding in and around Vin as she learns to harness them to play her part in the skaa rebellion in the book series by the same name. And who doesn’t love a good rebellion story these days? (Note: My hair in the photos is purple for pancreatic cancer awareness and support for a friend recently diagnosed.)

Size: One Size Fits Most
Circumference: about 82” or 208 cm around at the widest point of the lower edge
Length: about 30.5” or 77 cm (pattern includes tips to lengthen or shorten if desired)
Yarn: 7 skeins Cascade 220 (100% Wool; 220 yards/100 g). Sample is knit in color 2431 Chocolate Heather. (Note: If you plan to follow the instructions to lengthen, your yardage will go up!)
Needles: Size US 7 (4.50 mm) 24”, 32” and 60” circular needles and Size US 7 (3.75 mm) dpns or cn (or size needed to get gauge) (Note: You don’t have to have the longest length circular needle I you are willing to crowd many stitches onto the medium length circular. But it does make the project more manageable since you’ll have 400+ sts on the needles by the end of your increases.)
Materials: dpn or cn, yarn needle, dpn for i-cord edging, stitch markers in three different types – specifically 1 unique, 4 plain, 3 beaded (link to tutorial to make your own beaded markers provided).
Gauge: 20 sts and 24 rows = 4” in pattern
