16 sts and 24 rows = 4 inches/10cm in pat st, blocked. To save time, take time to check gauge.

Spe­cial Ab­bre­vi­a­tion

Make 1 Left (M1L): In­sert LH nee­dle from front to back un­der hor­i­zon­tal strand be­tween last st worked and next st on LH nee­dle; knit through back of re­sult­ing loop.

Pat­tern Notes

Pon­cho is com­prised of 2 iden­ti­cal asym­met­ri­cal tri­an­gles that are sewn to­gether leav­ing a neck open­ing.

Three sel­vage stitches are worked in garter at be­gin­ning and end of each row through­out the pat­tern.

All slip stitches are worked with the yarn held to the right side of the fab­ric.

Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used on the body to ac­com­mo­date large num­ber of stitches. Do not join; work back and forth in rows.

Be sure to in­ter­lock the yarns at each color change to pre­vent holes.
