GAUGE:

8 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (knit every row) with 1 strand each of A and B held tog. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

NOTES:

1. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches. Work back and forth in rows as if knitting on straight needles.
2. Blanket is worked with 1 strand each of A and B held together throughout.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PATTERN

  1. Q: In Rnd 3, where it says “Slip st in first space (working around post of last sc made) inches, what’s the post?
    A: sc was worked to create the last "space" of the each round. Work around the body of the sc (instead of in the top 2 loops) as if it were a ch-1 space.
  2. Q: Where is the other corner?
    A: There are 2 "corners" made in each rnd. One is at the center front and one at the center back of the poncho. The one corner is (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) halfway through the rnd. The other corner is worked in 2 pieces. You do half of the first corner at the beginning of the rnd (ch 3, 2 dc in same space), then finish it at the end of the rnd (3 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join). This produces a complete "corner".
  3. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 reads: “Slip st in first space, (ch 3, dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space, *ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, (Shell, ch 1, Shell) in next ch1-space; repeat from * 18 more times, ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, Shell in same space as beg; join with sc in top of beg ch – 40 Shells. inches but there is no sc in the previous rnd.
    A: There are 5 sc between the shells in Rnd 1 of the Edging. See the underlined phrases:
    Rnd 1 Sl st in first space, ch 3, dc in same space, * ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, shell between next 2 blocks; rep from * 18 times, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, 2 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join – 20 shells.
  4. Q: In the Edging, Round 1, what is a shell?
    A: Please see the Stitch Explanations section at the beginning of the pattern, where the definition is "Shell (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space."
  5. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 asks you to work into the next ch 1 space but there is no ch 1 space in the previous rnd.
    A: The ch 1 space is part of the shells worked in Rnd 1.
