Easy Peasy Knit Poncho

"Easy enough for a beginner - the only stitches are knit and purl. Any DK (light worsted) yarn will work but using Aran (worsted) will just give you a wider/longer poncho. I used Debbie Bliss Mia in Ruby on 4.5mm needles (USA 7)and I'm now working one up in an Aran weight on 5.5mm needles (USA 9). Block the knit before stitching together to form the neckline and the concertina effect should remain."


Knitting Needle Size7 or 4.5 mm

Yarn Weight(3) Light/DK (21-24 stitches to 4 inches)

Gauge20 stitches, 25 rows, 4 inches. purl 5, knit 5 over 20 stitches to get this gauge - although honestly gauge is easy come easy go on this project.

Materials List

  • DK yarn - around 1100 meters
  • circular needles 4.5mm (USA 7)
  • Wool needle to stitch together and create neck opening.
  • Scissors

Ponchos are so popular and this is a nice easy pattern. Sometimes you just need that extra layer and this pattern is great for that. It would be a great stash buster as well because it does not take a lot of yarn. Thank you.
