Color Block Poncho – Easy knitting!

Geometric color play and unusual construction makes this poncho a winner! Machine knit in panels and use the sew-as-you-go joining method, and you’ll be done in no time!

The dynamic pattern allows you to knit this beautiful poncho on any machine with any yarn. We knit ours in plain stockinette, but it would be great with a textured stitch pattern as well.

Pattern and Project (with video instruction) are free with your subscription to Knit it Now. The project will walk you through knitting your poncho and give you lots of tips for making it special. Also included is a video to help you alter this unusual shape for your size.

Included with the pattern purchase are 2 videos to help you put together this unusual shape.

    • Hi Meredith!
      There is quite a bit of knitting on this design … no matter what machine. :o)

      Options:
      1. Knit the sections separately and mattress stitch the panels together by hand. Time-consuming, but you can seam away from the machine. This is also a better finish than sew-as-you-go (IMHO)
      2. Knit the sections separately and seam them on the machine or with a linker
      3. Knit the sections separately and seam them with crochet slip stitch
      4. Change the order of knitting
      – Knit Section A and C
      – then Knit Section B joining all three panels as you knit (sew-as-you go on both sides)
      – Knit Section E
      – As you finish with section D, join all the panels together (sew-as-you go on both sides)
      5. Incorporate intarsia and knit multiple panels at the same time
