Shimmering Jade Knit Poncho

This free knitting pattern is a great project for beginner knitters. It includes easy-to-follow instructions including instructions for multiple sizes in order to ensure the perfect fit. We think this knit poncho pattern is as pretty as those jade gemstones found in our jewelry collections, and we love that this easy knitting pattern allows us to channel such a gorgeous color into our clothing. The perfect layering option this season, the Shimmering Jade Knit Poncho will provide you with the right amount of warmth on a chilly morning or night. We like the idea of layering it over a long sleeve top in order to transition this knit poncho into even colder seasons.

love this poncho. It's an easy pattern but looks nice. Also, the fact that it works up fast is a plus. I especially like the jade color that will look great with a black turtleneck in the winter. Saving this pattern for sure.

How long will this take to knit as a beginner?

I was wondering the same thing!

It knits up very fadt! I ised the exact yarn in the exact colr...hiwever , my problem is that it is way too short. On the model it comes down to at least her hips...the one I did in large doesn't even reach my waist! Other than having to adjust for that (adding more stitches) it is beautiful and very very easy!

Sorry for typos! It knits up very fast! Took me a couple of days to complete...

Did you make a gauge swatch before you started, and then adjust your needle size if necessary? I know making a swatch is sometimes a pain, especially when you're excited to start a new project, but that will help you choose the length that is right for you. Also whether you knit tightly or not will affect determining your size - and that's what the gauge swatch will help you adjust for. I love this pattern and am putting it on my list. I've never attempted a poncho before but this one seems super easy.
