It’s Free Pattern Friday!
Today, the Hidden Treasure Poncho in Major (link here).
There’s actually not much hidden about today’s pattern. There is, however, a lot to treasure. This poncho uses self-striping Major, which comes in ginormous 200g balls. Here’s a picture – Amy Gunderson for scale.
This yarn is a favorite because it’s easy to get a substantial project out of very few balls. Today’s design, for instance, calls for just three.
On size 10½ (6.5mm) needles, make two rectangles, then seam at the shoulders. Pick up and knit around for the ribbed collar, and you’re done. The stitch pattern is both written and charted, and doesn’t require a cable needle.
Last step: wear and treasure your work.
We hope you enjoy this gem of a poncho.
