Pattern Specifications

Skill Level:

Techniques Used
• 2 color cast on, for a video on this technique visit my short Video here
• Circular knitting
• Double knitting:
Two right sides are worked at the same time, using two different colors. At the end of this pattern, you can find a mini tutorial. Important to know: the charts only show the front side stitches (MC), the backside stitches (CC) are worked simultaneously.

The construction of this poncho is as follows: cast on at the collar using a two color cast on. The yoke is knit and sleeve stitches are placed on waste yarn. After the body is completed, the CC stitches are decreased and the MC stitches are bound off. The sleeves are knit and finished in a similar way as the body.
