7 stitches plus 9 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). 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 38 stitches and work even in stockinette stitch for 45-inches.

Bind off all stitches loosely.

Sew 12-inch 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 strands of yarn, each approximately 18 1/4 inches long.

Attach on one side of poncho (along cast on and bound off edges of piece) approximately 1 1/4 inches apart.
