Campfire Poncho

I wanted to make myself something and I ended up making a poncho which is perfect for a campfire. This is the easiest thing I've ever knitted and could easily be done with any kind of yarn.



For this poncho, I used Loops & Threads Copenhagen yarn in Daydream. It's super bulky and the needle size was 10mm or US 15.


I started by casting on 80 stitches thinking it would be the length of my arm and it ended up being the length I needed for my body.


80 Stitches made the perfect body length and I wear a large, so I would say for a small it would be 60 stitches and a medium would be 70 stitches. You need to make two rectangles that are the same.


For the arm length I knit 24 inches long.


For the pattern, I did a classic knit one, pearl one on one row and a knit row on the second.


At the end I weaved together both rectangles like the picture above and added tassels.


Pattern:


Cast on 80 stitches.

Row 1: Knit 1 pearl 1, until the end.

Row 2: Knit until the end.


Repeat row 1 and 2 until you reach 24 inches in length.


Weave together both rectangles like the picture above.



Add a tassel every inch or every three stitches. Here is a video on how to make tassels.




Now you have a beautiful poncho that was easy to make.

Thanks for reading,

Samantha
