loops & threads® loops™ shifting poncho

You won’t believe how easy it is to work up the beautiful bands of aqua and teal in this color-shifting poncho! Since it’s made with Loops™ yarn, you won’t need a hook or needles. Just take a look at the free pattern below to DIY this lovely textured piece!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: Length: 21", Width: 50".

GAUGE: 5.5 sts x 6 rows = 4".

SPECIAL STITCHES:

  • LK (Loop Knit): Reach through the next loop on your project, from front to back, then grab the next loop on your yarn and pull it through.
  • LP (Loop Purl): Reach through the next loop on your project, from back to front, grab the next loop on your yarn and pull it through.

PATTERN NOTES:

  • Rows are worked either right to left, or left to right, always with the right side of the work showing. You do not turn your project over at the end of the row.
  • Join a new ball by pulling both the last loop of the previous ball and the first loop of the new ball through the next stitch. When you reach this doubled stitch on the next row, pull the new loop through both loops as if they were one stitch.
  • For seaming, either use a non-looped yarn in a similar color and size, or you can open up Loops™ by snipping the thread at the base of each loop until you have a long enough piece for seaming.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Front/Back (make 2)

Count out 30 loops.

Row 1: Work across the 30 loops as follows, from right to left, *LP in each of the next 4 loops, LK in next loop, LP in next loop, LK in each of the next 4 loops; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn.  

Row 2: Working from left to right, *LK in each of the next 3 loops, LP in each of the next 2 loops, LK in each of the next 2 loops, LP in each of the next 3 loops; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn. 

Row 3: Working from right to left, *LP in each of the next 2 loops, LK in each of the next 2 loops, LP in the next loop, LK in the next loop, LP in each of the next 2 loops, LK in each of the next 2 loops; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn.   

Row 4: Working from left to right, *LK in the next loop, (LP in each of the next 2 loops, LK in each of the next 2 loops) twice, LP in the next loop; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn. 

Row 5: Working from right to left, *LK in each of the next 2 loops, LP in each of the next 3 loops, LK in each of the next 3 loops, LP in each of the next 2 loops; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn. 

Row 6: Working from left to right, *LP in the next loop, LK in each of the next 4 loops, LP in each of the next 4 loops, LK in the next loop; rep from * 2 more times. Do not turn. 

Repeat Rows 1-6, 11 more times, then repeat Rows 1-3 once more.   


Starting at the opposite end of the row as the working yarn, reach through the first loop and grab the second loop, pull it through the first loop, *reach through the loop you just pulled through, grab the next loop, pull this loop through the last loop; repeat from * across until only one loop remains. Cut yarn next to last loop. Use a sewing needle and thread to secure last loop.


Finishing:

Cut the thread joining the bottom of each loop in the remainder of the final ball of yarn to obtain smooth yarn for seaming.

Working along the long edges, sew shoulder seams, sewing 20" on each side from edge toward center, leaving the center 10" open for neck.

Define waist by sewing small 8" seams, starting 13" from each edge, using the schematic as a guide.

Weave in ends.
