Two of my nieces are nearly the same age so it’s
useful and stressless to make them similar knitting projects.

Inspecting my stash I saw many cotton leftovers from various projects, all less than a skein. And I had just frogged a shirt knitted by our late Aunt who was an avid knitter but lazy in sewing the pieces.
The marine blue yarn from the shirt was used as main color and the leftovers formed wavy segments in short rows.
The pictures show the same poncho from all sides and the way my niece wears it telling us that she will wear it to suit her mood.

In Lena’s Poncho I used up all leftovers from the leftovers and kept a small amount of 12 grams.

Basic pattern is a top-down-knit ordinary poncho with increases on four sides. There is no pattern because a step-by-step-pattern will have about 90 pages.
If you are trained in Swing-Knitting with short-rows - will say: you already knitted some meters in this method - you only need the following informations:

Ordinary stanzas
Melody: 8-6-5-4-3-2-2-2-3-4-5-6-8
Melody Width 35 sts.

If you are a beginner in Swing-Knitting it’s recommended to make at least workshop 1-3
