"Hi, I can't find the knitting pattern for this book, can I have it please?"
"With the page open, right click on your mouse, this will open a new window, in the new window scroll down to and click on print. That will take you to print review, in print preview change "all" to just the pages that the pattern is on and click print. Using the cut and copy feature to paste the document into another program for printing is actually a violation of international copyright laws, but printing directly from the page is permitted. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!"

Banked Coals Knit Poncho Pattern
The only thing more beautiful than the lovely fade of this knit poncho is the person wearing it!

There's always something unique that a poncho has to offer, and this Banked Coals Knit Poncho Pattern has two interesting elements: first is the stunning shift of colors in the yarn used, and second is the asymmetrical nature of the poncho itself. If you're a little bit edgy and normal, symmetrical ponchos bore you, this might do the trick. You can learn how to knit a woolen poncho with some cozy, bulky yarn for something truly warm enough to get you through the winter, or you can use cotton or linen yarn for something breathable for spring.

I have just started working on this poncho. I cant understand how it works out asymmetrical when its worked the same on both sides! can anyone enlighten me?

If you read the pattern, it's in one piece for 18", then separated and worked to 34" total, so the divide is not in the middle, you will have 18" on the first half and 16" on the second half, that is how it comes out asymmetrical. I don't like that or the seam, so I worked it for 18", divided for 8", then rejoined and worked to 36", to make it even and not asymmetrical.

Thank you Lisa. I think I will do the same as I dont like the idea of a seam on a poncho. Thank you.

I really hate the idea of a seam in a poncho, so I worked the front and back separately for 8" then rejoined them to continue working in one piece.
