Pattern: Using two strands of fingering held together, Cast on 104 sts on 16 inch
needle. Join to form circle, being careful not to twist. K1, P 1 rib for two rounds. Then
work eyelet round: (YO, P 2 tog) around. Purl 1 round. Drop
second strand of fingering and now work with only one strand.
Begin poncho shaping. You will now alternate rounds of fingering
and silk. Do not cut yarns. All increases are done in the fingering rounds, silk rounds are just knit around. The increases are
paired at four points around.
Round 1: With fingering (Knit 1 and put pin marker IN that stitch,
Knit 25, YO) 4 times....end by creating a YO with the fingering
and "catching" it by twisting the silk around.
Round 2: With silk. Knit around.
To continue shaping, work YO increases on either side of marked
"seam" stitches as established in Round 1 on every fingering
When there are 73 stitches between markers the shaping is
With fingering, Purl 1 round. Then knit 1 round.
Again using the double
strand of fingering,
LOOSELY bind off IN
Still with double strand
single crochet backwards ( crab stitch )
around entire
edge. Cut yarn.
Weave in any cut
Make twisted cord out
of silk and weave
through eyelets at
neck edge.
