9 stitches + 12 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in garter stitch (knit every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.


Cast on 40 stitches.

Work in garter stitch until piece measures 48 inches.

Bind off and weave in ends.


Fold piece in half widthwise (18 inches x 24 inches).

Sew 10 inches seam along top of one long side of piece from end toward fold, leaving remainder of edge open to form neck opening of Poncho.


Cut 27 pieces of ribbon, each 24 inches long.

Starting at bottom corner, slip a piece of ribbon through corner stitch and tie with a square knot.

Repeat this every 3rd stitch up short end of knitted piece (18 inches side), placing 13 pieces of ribbon on front, 13 pieces on back and one at the seam.

Make sure to vary lengths so that fringe is uneven (between 11 inches-13 inches long).

Every effort has been made to have the knitting and crochet instructions accurate and complete. We cannot be responsible for variance of individual knitters and crocheters, human errors, or typographical mistakes.
