PER­FECT PONCHO

Simply Knitting - - In The Loop -

Thank you for the poncho pat­tern in is­sue 162. I’m a bit of a one for adapt­ing pat­terns to suit a yarn that I like – this is done in Sir­dar Har­rap Tweed DK – and I’m re­ally pleased with the end re­sult. I added an ex­tra two pat­tern re­peats (152 stitches to­tal) and did my but­ton­holes at 22-row in­ter­vals. I cal­cu­lated this by com­par­ing the pat­tern ten­sion and the yarn ten­sion. I also knit­ted on 4mm nee­dles to suit the yarn. It’s a lovely size, and I’ve used it as a lap blan­ket, a cape and a poncho. I’ve also tried it as a shrug, and that looks good as well.
