Want To "Duplicate" A Bought Poncho
I recently purchased a what I believe is a knit poncho (as opposed to crocheted) .. it is a pull over style with a loose neck, more of a cowl I guess ... you can pull it up over your head in BC rain but it doesn't look all that great (my daughter has a name for it but it's too obscene to post .. it embarrasses her to death when I do this) ... it's not a stocking or garter stitch, rather a small type of openwork .. going by my little "learn to knit" Wal Mart booklet, it could be a moss stitch or a trinity, it isn't just plain knitting ... when I lay it out flat, it appears to be made in two large 35"x50" sections and sewn together, the seams being down the sides along the shoulders ... the cowl is 11" x 13" and has one seam so it looks like it was knitted straight, like a scarf, sewn up at the back to make a tube, then somehow sewn to the poncho and it turns down a couple of times ... it is a flimsy type of flecked brown/lighter brown .. 84% acrylic/14% polyester/2% nylon .. I saw the stuff in Michaels but didn't take note of the brand.

I have had so many compliments on it ... in fact my girlfriend and the receptionist at my hair salon love it in fact the receptionist has gone so far as to threaten to take it every time I take it off and she has to hang it up .. I see her walking away stroking it .... I figure if I could learn how to make one I could give them their own so they wouldn't feel the unbridled need to covet mine .. anyone know of an easy pattern for a newbie/dummy to try? Must have a cowl, or a turtleneck that one could (I guess) adapt and make larger? Is that possible?

Hi Toby,

Your description sounds like it would be fairly simple & straightforward...

Here's a link to many poncho patterns that you could look through to try to find something similar.

Have fun!
