How to Knit Braided Cables

Learn how to knit the braided cables you see in this pattern by checking out this helpful video tutorial.

Cozy Hooded Poncho

Sizes: S (M, L, 1X-2X)

Finished Circumference at Bust: 44 (48, 52, 56) in. (112 (122, 132, 142) cm)

NOTE: Pattern is written for smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning.

Gauges: 20 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Cable Pattern with A.
15 sts + 22 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in Rev St st worked in the rnd (p every rnd) with A.
12 sts + 24 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm) in Rev St st worked in the rnd with B.

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 match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Cable Pattern I and II

Stitch Explanations:
3/3 LC (3 over 3 left cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3, then k3 from cable needle.
3/3 RC (3 over 3 right cross) Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, k3 then k3 from cable needle.
kfb (knit in front and back) Knit next st without removing it from left needle, then k through back of same st – 1 st increased.

    Row 1: Knit.
    Rows 2, 4 and 6: Purl

    Rnd 7: K3, 3/3 LC.
    Rnd 8: Knit.
    Rep Rows 1-8 for Cable patt II.

  3. NOTES
    1. The Lower Band is worked as a flat strip, working back and forth in rows on the circular needle. Ends of strip are seamed to make a ring, then sts are picked up along one long edge of the Band for the Poncho.
    2. A cable pattern is worked on the Lower Band, Poncho, front band and hood. If desired, stitch markers can be used to highlight those sts.
    3. Poncho is worked in the round, then divided at neck and worked back and forth in rows.
    4. After shaping at top of Poncho has been completed, the remaining sts are used to make the front band.
    5. Sts are picked up along the edge of the front band to make the hood.
    6. Some sections of the Poncho include selvedge sts. These are sts that create an edge for seaming pieces together.

Poncho Pattern

  1. Lower Band Pattern
    Note: Lower Band is worked back and forth on a circular needle in rows, as if working on straight needles.
    With A, cast on 15 sts.
    Row 1: K2, p1, work Row 1 of Cable patt I over next 9 sts, p1, k2.
    Row 2: K1, p1, k1, work next row of Cable patt I to next marker, k1, p1, k1.
    Row 3: K2, p1, work next row of Cable patt I to next marker, p1, k2.
    Rep Rows 2 and 3 until piece measures about 44 (48, 52, 56) in. (112 (122, 132, 142) cm) from beg.
    Bind off.
    Seam cast on end of Band to bound off end of Band to make a ring.

  2. Poncho Pattern
    Along one long edge of Band, measure about 11 (12, 13, 14) in. (28 (30.5, 33, 35.5) cm) from seam and place a marker.
    NOTE: To work the next section, you will be picking up sts evenly spaced across the marked edge of Band. An easy way to do this is to divide the edge into halves, then quarters, etc - using pins or scraps of yarn to mark the sections. Now, simply pick up and k sts within each of the sections - for example, for the smallest size you will need to pick up and k 132 sts. If you first divide the long edge of the Band into 8 equal size sections, you should pick up and k 16 sts evenly spaced across sections 1, 3, 5 and 7 and 17 sts evenly spaced across sections 2, 4, 6 and 8 for a total of 132 sts.

    From RS with B and beg at marker, pick up and k132 (144, 156, 168) sts evenly spaced along long, marked edge of Band. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
    Work in Rev St st worked in the rnd (p every rnd) for 7 rnds. Change to A.

    Next Rnd: With A, k11 (12, 13, 14), *kfb, k1; rep to last 11 (12, 13, 14) sts, kfb, k to end of rnd – 187 (204, 221, 238) sts at the end of this rnd.
    Next Rnd: *Work Rnd 1 of Cable patt II over 9 sts, p8; rep from * around.
    Next Rnd: *Work next rnd of Cable patt II over 9 sts, p8; rep from * around.
    Rep last rnd until piece measures about 12 (12 1/2, 13, 13 1/2) in. (30.5 (32, 33, 34.5) cm) from pick up rnd, ending with a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8.
    Note: Ending with a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8 means that the last rnd you work should be a Rnd 4 or Rnd 8.

  3. Divide for Neck
    Note: The remainder of Poncho will be worked back and forth in rows on circular needle. If you ended with a Rnd 4 above, you should beg Next Row with Row 5 of Cable patt I. If you ended with a Rnd 8 above, beg Next Row with Row 1 of Cable patt I.
    Next Row (RS): K1 (selvedge st for neck), kfb, k7, *p8, work next row of Cable patt I over next 9 sts; rep from * to last 8 sts, p6, kfb, k1 (selvedge st for neck) –189 (206, 223, 241) sts. Remove beg of rnd marker.

    Keeping first and last sts in Garter st (k every row), remaining sts in Cable patt I and Rev St st st, work even for 3 rows.
    NOTE: When you see ‘work even’ in the instructions, this means to continue on in the pattern st you have established without changing the st count by increasing, decreasing, or binding off.
    Next (Dec) Row: K1, *work next row of Cable patt I over next 9 sts, p2tog, p5; rep from * to last st, k1 –167 (182, 197, 213) sts.

There isn't a picture. I don't knit anything that I don't know what it looks like.

I can't find a picture either.(Sandia Jacket) All the other patterns have pictures. I won't knit it if I can't see it.
