Jazzy Poncho

By:

If you're looking for a lightweight, fun, frilly, knitted poncho pattern, you'll find it in this Jazzy Poncho from Caron!  This poncho is easy to make and can be worn with almost anything.  Dress it down during the day and jazz it up at night!

Jazzy Poncho

Materials:

  • Caron International's Simply Soft Brites: 4 ply, Worsted Weight (100% acrylic; 6 oz/170g): 2 skeins # 9610 Grape
  • Size US #13 or #15 knitting needles
  • Size J crochet hook
  • Diagram
     

Instructions:

  1. CO 33 (43) sts. Purl 1 row.
     
  2. Pattern (numbers 2-5):  R1: K1, *K1-YO-K3-Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO-K3-YO* end K2.
     
  3. Rows 2-4-6: Purl.
     
  4. R3: K1* K2-YO-K2-Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO-K2-YO-K1* end K3 instead of K1.
     
  5. R5: K1-K2tog* YO-K1-YO-K1-Sl1-K2tog-PSSO-K1-YO-K1-YO-Sl 1-K2tog-PSSO* end YO-K1-YO- K2tog-K1.  Added clarification for Row 5: rep from *, ending last rep [k1, yo] twice, k2tog, k1.
     
  6. The last time you repeat from the * instead of doing the sl 1, k2tog, psso after the [k1, yo] twice, you end with k2tog, k1. Therefore the last time through the repeat you only work 5 sts instead of 10 and then work the 5 ending stitches. This works out to 43 sts. For the last 10-st repeat of the pattern, there is no compensating increase (yo) after the double decrease (sl 1, k2tog, PSSO), so instead of working 'sl 1, k2tog, psso' (a double decrease, using 3 sts) you work 'k2tog' (a single decrease, using 2 sts), then knit the last st (which is actually an edge st throughout the Stitch pattern). This will keep the stitch count consistent on Row 5.
     
  7. Repeat rows 1-6 for 30”. Bind off loosely.
     
  8. Make 2 pieces.
     

 

FINISHING

  1. Lay pieces flat. Mark each piece according to diagram.
     
  2. Join and pin seams.
     

 

NECKLINE

  1. Using crochet hook, SC in each loop decreasing in each “V” or seam. Join.
     
  2. Finish with Backward SC or Shell Stitch.
     

 

FRINGE

  1. Cut 10”-Use 3 strands.
