8 sts + 13 rows = 4" [10 cm] in St st (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.

This poncho is made of 2 rectangles worked sideways so the stripes run vertically on the body.

The rectangles are sewn together at the center of the garment.




With A, cast on 100 sts.

Continue with St st in the following color sequence:4 rows B6 rows C10 rows A14 rows B8 rows C4 rows A8 rows B6 rows CBind off all sts with C.

Place pieces with wrong sides together, matching cast on and bound off edges.

Sew pieces together with a running stitch just below the bound off edge so the edges form a ridge on the outside of the work.

Sew for 20" [51 cm], starting at one edge.

Fasten off.

Sew second seam starting at the other edge for 20" [51 cm], leaving 10" [25.5 cm] in the center open for the neck opening.
