Yarn Weight
- Fingering
YARN 2 skeins Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn in Graphite (200g) 650g of Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn in a variety of colours, full skeins or Minis. I have used my leftovers and some PotluckTM colours. To achieve a similar colour story, I’d recommend the following: Full skeins in Iris, Phoenix, Fool’s Gold, Foam, Piggy Bank and Heyday and Minis in Guppy, Dijon, Down By The River, Skinny Dip, Typewriter and Coral. Please note - the yarn is held double, so while you need around 850g of yarn, you will be knitting only around 1700m. So i you decide to go for a DK weight instead of fingering doubled you will need about 1700m. NEEDLE 3.75mm for the body and 3.5mm for the cast off, circular or straight. The garment is knitted flat. GAUGE 21 stitches and 42 rows is 10cm in garter stitch. Measurements taken after washing and laying flat to dry.
Finished size
The poncho is 72cm wide 66cm shoulder to hem when laying flat. Measurements taken after washing and laying flat to dry.
Simple modular poncho design with an applied i-cord border. No need to pick up stitches all the way around, yay! You will be holding two strands of different colours for a marled effect. The poncho is knitted in sections that are attached as you go. Easy and fun project, incorporating lots of different colours of fingering weight, so go dive into that stash!
