Aflutter Poncho by Maron Melchior



Aflutter Poncho available on Ravelry for purchae:  

Sample knit with 3 skeins of Uneek Fingering & 2 of Monokrom Fingering

A natural extension of the popular Butterfly/Papillon Shawl. This works your short rows in the round in an ever expanding series of short rows for a magical, seamless poncho.

The LINES are worked in GARTER (ridges) and the SHAPES are worked in STOCKING KNIT (flat) - so there is a lovely texture to the piece and it has more drape.

BLOCKING should be conservatively done, to keep the piece from becoming too large. I pinned the collar to keep it smaller, before flattening and pinning out the bottom edge.

Gauge: using US 04s and stocking knit stitch – this gauge is in pattern and after blocking.
Gauge is not crucial and will be impacted by blocking. 24 sts to 4” & 32 rows to 4”

Needles: Needles, round, size 40” (or larger) US 04. The piece starts small with magic loop and gets very big.

Notions: many regular/plain stitch markers, 8 fancy/different markers for the POLES, and needle or hook to tuck in ends
