Needle: US 4 / 3.5 mm

Gauge: 24 stitches and 32 rows = 4" / 10 cm square in the stocking knit sections of the Poncho, after blocking.

Notions: Many regular/plain stitch markers, 8 fancy/different markers for the POLES, and needle or hook to tuck in ends

The LINES are worked in GARTER (ridges) and the SHAPES are worked in STOCKING KNIT (flat) - so there is a lovely xtexture to the piece and it has more drape.

BLOCKING should be conservatively done, to keep the piece from becoming too large. I pinned the collar to keep it smaller, before flattening and pinning out the bottom edge.

If using stash/scraps might suggest that you tie either each section or the entire thing together with ONE line color (CC) yarn. One tester used a different LINE color for each section and it is FABULOUS!

Please remember – Markers are kept in place (at POLES & every 10 sts) to help counting & maintain alignment with shape. Additional markers are added with increases at corners when appropriate (every 10 sts).
Notes in the pattern help to know where your markers and stitches should lie.
