Hello,
I will Post this pattern its from my MOMs old 1960's file.

KNITTED PONCHO

Not sure I think this is womans sizes?? :??

It goes like this needles from size #10 for sizes 4-6
#10 1/2 or #11 for size 8-10
#13 for size 12-14

Cast on 136 stitches Loosely.
1st row Purl 68 stitches place marker Purl to end of row.
2nd row knit 1 knit 2 tog knit to within 2 stitches of marker and knit those 2 tog, slip marker knit next 2 tog knit to within last 3 stitches knit 2 tog knit 1.
3rd row Purl

Repeat row 2 and 3 until 58 rows there will be 20 stitches left on needle
knit 1 purl1 in ribbing for 1 inch or desired length for neck. Bind off loosely on ribbing.

Make other side the same.

Sew side seams together ..

Cut 10 " strips of yarn .. Join 3 together and form fringe.

I so Hope many of you will enjoy this Pattern MOM is gone now and Id love to see it made by all who know how to knit.

My Mom as I remember made many beautiful Ponchos in the pattern its easy.. :XX:

I just cant figure how to make it child size... :?? There were vague indications but nothing solid.. Moms notes Bless her heart IN Heaven.. :heart:

Thanks so much Joanne
Any and all help would be appreciated :cheering:

Bump!

I'm so sorry this slipped through the cracks. :oops: I don't know the answer, but maybe this (http://knitting.about.com/library/blharmonyknittech.htm) book will help. :thinking:
