Reversible because of the faux fur yarn, the fur hides the stitches, if you’re using any other yarn, it’s not reversible.

The CO edge is the height, height measures from the shoulder to the waist.

Knit using the stockinette stitch.

Knit flat, back & forth on circular needles, which are used to accommodate the large number of CO stitches.

Knit flat, like a blanket, then fold in half to create poncho.

Pattern, Knit Flat {Back & Forth}:

CO the number of STS from the “Size” section above.

Row 1 {WS}: WYIF S1PW, *P*, WYIF S1PW

Row 2 {RS}: K1TBL, *K*, K1TBL

Repeat rows 1-2 until recommended or desired length.

BO loosely.

Weave in the ends.

No blocking necessary.


Sew Seam to Create Poncho:

Fold it in half bringing the CO & BO edges together {do not sew this edge}. Starting at the top outside edge, whip stitch the front and back together, leaving enough of a gap for your head to fit through. You can leave the opening a little larger if you’d like to show a little shoulder. ;)


Pro tip:

If you’re a beginner knitter, you don’t have to K1TBL, just knit it, or WYIF S1PW, just purl it. This yarn is super forgiving, so don’t let those stitches discourage you from knitting this lovely poncho!
