This Trinity Knit Poncho Pattern really has the trifecta: beauty, simplicity, and versatility. Whether you're looking for cool knitting patterns to wear daily, or a special knit for a special occasion, this is the poncho to knit. The gorgeous, pale pink color shown will add a feminine touch to any pair of jeans, but if you're looking for something a bit fancier, try knitting it in a deep blue or black and wearing it with a long dress. This easy knitting pattern is perfect for beginners and advanced knitters alike, so there's no reason to be shy.

PANELS (make 2)

Using 3 3/4 mm (US 5) needles cast on 112 [125:138] sts.

Work in g st for 2 rows, ending with RS facing for next row.

Next row (RS): K3, *K2tog, yfwd, K5, yfwd,sl 1, K1, psso, K4, rep from * to last 5 sts, K2tog, yfwd, K3.


Now work in patt as folls:

Row 1 (WS): K2, P to last 2 sts, K2.

Row 2: K3, *yfwd, sl 1, K1, psso, K3, K2tog, yfwd, K1, yfwd, sl 1, K1, psso, K3, rep from * to last 5 sts, yfwd, sl 1, K1, psso, K3.

Row 3: As row 1.

Row 4: K3, *K2tog, yfwd, K2, K2tog, yfwd, K1, (yfwd, sl 1, K1, psso) twice, K2, rep from * to last 5 sts, K2tog, yfwd, K3.

These 4 rows form patt.

Cont in patt until panel meas 133.5 [141.5: 145.5] cm, ending with RS facing for next row.

Work in g st for 2 rows, ending with RS facing for next row.

Cast off.

(Note: For left side of garment, use the cast-on edge as the front hem edge, and the cast-off edge as the back hem edge. For right side of garment, use the cast-on edge as the back hem edge, and the cast-off edge as the front hem edge.)



Press garment. Using back stitch, or mattress stitch if preferred, join centre front seam by joining panels together along row-end edges from front hem edge to a point 32 [35: 36] cm up from hem edge. Mark points along these inner row-end edges 55 [59: 61] cm down from back hem edges – there should be 47 [48: 49] cm between marked points and top of centre front seam.



With RS facing and using 3 1/4 mm (US 3) needles, pick up and knit 117 [121: 121] sts down left panel row-end edge from marker to top of centre front seam, place marker on needle, then 117 [121: 121] sts up right panel row-end edge from top of centre front seam to marker. 234 [242: 242] sts.

Row 1 (WS): P2, *K2, P2, rep from * to end.

Row 2: *K2, P2, rep from * to within 5 sts of marker, K2, P1, K2tog, slip marker onto right needle, sl 1, K1, psso, P1, K2, **P2, K2, rep from ** to end.

These 2 rows set position of rib and beg V neck shaping.

Keeping rib correct, cont as folls:

Row 3: Rib to within 1 st of marker, P2 (Marker is between these 2 sts), rib to end.

Row 4: Rib to within 2 sts of marker, K2tog, slip marker onto right needle, sl 1, K1, psso, rib to end.

Rep last 2 rows 8 times more, then first of these rows again, ending with RS facing for next row. 214 [222: 222] sts.

Cast off in rib, still decreasing either side of marker as before.

Remove marker.

Join centre back seam by joining row-end edges from top of neckband to back hem edges of panels.

Along outer (unjoined) row-end edges of panels, mark shoulder fold lines by marking points 67 [71: 73] cm from cast-on/cast-off edges - this is centre of outer row-end edge.

Now mark points 22 [24: 25] cm either side of shoulder markers (to denote base of armhole openings).


Armhole borders (both alike)

With RS facing and using 3 1/4 mm (US 3) needles, pick up and knit 110 [118: 122] sts evenly along outer row-end edges between markers denoting base of armhole openings.

Row 1 (WS): P2, *K2, P2, rep from * to end.

Row 2: K2, *P2, K2, rep from * to end.

These 2 rows form rib.

Cont in rib for a further 13 rows, ending with RS facing for next row.

Cast off in rib.

Join side seams by joining row-end edges from cast-off edge of armhole borders to points 5 cm below armhole border pick-up row - there should be 40 [42: 43] cm left open below side seams.

This is so beautiful! The yarn look absolutely gorgeous - like gossamer - and I just love the pattern. I have never seen Kidsilk yarn here in South Africa, though. Is there anyone who has perhaps made this poncho with a different yarn? Please would you let me know what you used? I could probably find the Kidsilk online but the postage costs from US to South Africa are very high making it quite unaffordable.

This yarn is a lace weight, fuzzy yarn with 229 yards per skein, so you could substitute with another fuzzy lace weight yarn because the cost of this yarn is too high before taxes, shipping and handling. Hope this helps, happy knitting!

I love doing the trinity stitch. Lovely in a lacy yarn. Great look for casual or professional look. I don't know about rating it as "easy". Certainly not mindless knitting. Classic look that will not quickly go out of style.

Another versatile poncho - this would look great paired with so many outfits, adding that touch of class that makes one stand out

What cast on and bind off are you using so that they match? thanks.

I would go to Rowans website and ask there. http//

It doesn't say here, or at least I couldn't find it, which cast on and bind off kinds they are using, but if it were me, I would use either a provisional cast on, then bind off both edges the same way or I would use a chain cast on, which seems simpler to me.
