Let’s Knit a Poncho
I set out to knit a special birthday gift for my dear friend, Lisa. She absolutely loves earth tones and when I saw all of the fantastic colors of this new yarn from Berroco, I knew I had to select one of them and knit something for her. This project changed names and directions a few times along the way, from Lisa’s Poncho to Lisa’s Mystery Poncho, to Mystery Poncho, and finally Let’s Knit a Poncho. We had a Mystery Poncho class with wonderful, adventurous students who knit the poncho from three separate pattern segments. Now that the class had concluded, I have combined them into one pattern to share with you. It’s easy! I hope you enjoy it!

The poncho is approximately 22” deep from the neck edge to the bottom edge x 60” in circumference at the widest part of the bottom. It is knit in the round, from the top down.
Gauge 4 sts./in. Knit in stockinette stitch.
