Pat­tern Notes

The pon­cho is worked in 1 piece, start­ing at the bot­tom of the front, go­ing over the shoul­ders and then go­ing down to the bot­tom of the back.

Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of stitches. Do not join. Slip first stitch of ev­ery row. The Small Leaf Edg­ing is added on by work­ing the last stitch of the edg­ing to­gether with a live stitch from the pon­cho.


Note: At the beg of pat Rows 13 and 14, work 2 short rows in the garter st edg­ing as fol­lows: Sl 1, k9; turn, k10, turn; k10, then con­tinue in pat as es­tab­lished, rep this short-row set on each 13th and 14th row. This will help com­pen­sate for the dif­fer­ence in the row gauge be­tween the garter edge and the Lace pat.
