      • STITCH EXPLANATION:
      • Yo (yarn over)
      • An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
      • Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
      • Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. Proceed with the next st as instructed.

      • NOTES:
      • Four Panels are worked separately, then sewn together to make Poncho.
      • Panels are worked back and forth in rows on circular needle, as if working on straight needles.
      • Two Panels are worked in intarsia colorwork, following a chart.
      • When working intarsia, use a separate ball of yarn for each color section, do not carry unused color across WS of work. Twist yarns on WS to prevent holes.
      • To print the chart, click on the "Download Project PDF" button (above).
      • When following chart, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS), and read RS chart rows from right to left and WS chart rows from left to right.
      • Stitches are picked up around lower edge of Panels for border, then border is worked in the round.
      • End with a WS row means that the last row you work should be a WS row, and the next row that you are ready to work will be a RS row.
      • When you see "– 12 sts" in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.

        • Beg Chart
        • Row 1 (RS): With A, k8, work Row 1 of Skull Chart across next 17 sts, with A, k9.
        • Continue in St st, keeping first and last sts with A and remaining sts following chart until 38 rows of Skull Chart have been completed.
        • With A only, continue in St st until piece measures same length as Plain Panels.
        • Bind off.

        • FINISHING:

Rep on opposite side.
        • Lower Edge Border
        • Note that one corner of each Plain Panel forms a ‘point’ along the lower edge of the Poncho.

Place marker for beg of rnd and join by working the first st on left hand needle with working yarn from right hand needle.
        • Rnd 1: *P1, yo, purl to next marker, yo, slip marker (sm); rep from * once – you will have 208 sts at the end of this rnd.
        • Rnd 2: (K1, yo, knit to next marker, yo, sm) twice – 212 sts.
