This poncho pattern comes with matching fingerless mittens.Fun and easy to wear for all sizes-warm, but not bulky! When a coat is too much, but it’s chilly out, this poncho is perfect.
Loom: 28” Loom +Extenders Set up for double knit using small wood spacers at 1 cm spacing
Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky, 75% Acrylic, 25% Wool #5, aprox 121 yds per skein. Total used in sample is 14 skeins. Color is Med Blue.
Stitches: Stockinette, Knit and Purl
Notions: Knit hook, Crochet hook, Sewing/darning needle
Size: One size fits most adults.
Gauge: 8 sts x 14 rows=3”
Finished Dimensions: 44” wide x 62” long from front hem to back hem.
Poncho is designed in 3 pieces, the Right side, the Left side, and the Hood, with a simple crocheted tie for neckline. Gloves are each worked in one piece. All edging is accented with Purl stitches, and we call this effect, Popcorn Stitches. The rest of the poncho is done with basic double knit stockinette.
Basic Abbreviations Used: P=purl K=knit aprox=approximately st(sts)=stitch (stitches) R=right L=left
The Popcorn is worked on all sides of each, the R and L side. When the pieces are joined together down front and back of poncho, the Popcorn really stands out.
Popcorn Stitch: Work Purl stitch on every other stitch, on both sides of the loom. One row will start with purl st and the next row will start with knit stitch. Alternate the knit and purl stitches as you go across the loom. Directions for starting each row will be given at beginning of the section.
Left side of poncho: Cast on 58 sts in stockinette. Lay anchor yarn.
Rows 1-14: Work in Popcorn, starting first row with K stitch. Work across loom alternating the K st with the Purl st. Start the next row with P st and alternate the knit and purl across the loom.
Row 15: Start row with P st and continue Popcorn for 8 sts. Work 44 sts in Stockinette St, and last 6 sts in Popcorn to end.
Repeat row 15 until the piece is aprox 26” long, less border, or if counting rows, you will have worked aprox 122 rows. For shorter poncho, work less rows.
Neckline/Shoulder: We are creating the opening for the neck.
Bind off 6 stitches at end of loom, or R side of loom. Start this bind off at last stitch or right edge of knit. Place last bind off loop onto next peg with yarn. This will end the Popcorn on R side of knitted piece. On next row, be sure to lift both loops from the bind off when completing this row.
Work 21 rows on remaining 52 stitches. This is the side of the neckline across shoulder. Now, you want to place the 6 sts back onto the right side of the knitted poncho center. To do this, continue row 21 for additional 6 stitches. Lay anchor yarn over just these 6 new stitches. Complete this row with hook over, but the 6 new stitches will just have one loop. You can hook them over after the next full row. Start the Popcorn on this row for the 6 new stitches.
Continue working the next 122 rows with 8 sts Popcorn, 44 sts Stockinette, 6 sts Popcorn.
Work 14 rows in Popcorn so that finish is same as the beginning.
Right Side Of Poncho: Right side of poncho is knit just like the left side except, work row 15 as, 6 Popcorn stitches, 44 Stockinette stitches and 8 Popcorn stitches. Work the neckline/shoulder from the beginning of the loom, or first 6 sts. Before taking this piece off loom, lay next to Left side to confirm that they are the same length. Adjust if necessary.
Hood: The hood is worked with Popcorn stitch around the face. It will fold back before sewing to poncho. (if desired)
Cast On 32 stitches in Stockinette stitch. Lay anchor yarn.
Work 24 sts in Stockinette, 8 sts in Popcorn across the 32 cast on stitches.
Repeat this row until the piece measures aprox 28” in length.
Bind off of loom and anchor yarn loosely with 2 loop method. (1 thru 1 loops). Set aside for sewing.
Make a drawstring with crochet chain aprox 50”, completed length.
Sewing and Finishing:
The 2 sides of the poncho will be joined so that the neckline is lined up and creates a soft rectangular opening. This is where the hood will be attached. You want to seam the two sides together using matching yarn and the darning needle. You are joining the 6 st edges of the popcorn stitches.
Sew with invisible stitch. Join one seam (back of poncho) from bottom hem to neckline opening (back of neckline). When sewing the front of poncho, leave the top 5-6” open at neckline, and sew from this point to hem. Do some reinforcement stitches at neckline opening.
Your poncho is now in one piece-just need to add the hood. Fold the hood over so that the popcorn edges are together. Seam the back of hood from top to bottom edge. Slip the hood on your head to determine how deep you want it to be as this will help you decide if folding the popcorn edge over is desirable.
The hood is sewn to the poncho by matching the center of hood to center of back at back seam. Match the front edges of the hood to the front top edge of the neckline. Tack these points, and a few others in between. This will keep the hood lined up with the poncho for complete sewing. Sew securely all around the neck opening, so that the hood is now part of the poncho. Do this using invisible stitch.
Attaching the Crochet Tie: Lay the crochet tie around neckline seam so that the ends are equal length at front of hood. There should be about 12” of crochet tie at each side of hood. Stitch the tie to the neckline seam with matching yarn and secure at each outer front edge of hood.
(Optional) You may want to knot the ends of tie or sew on a small pompom or bead. Your poncho is ready to wear.
Matching Fingerless Gloves: These are perfect to add some warmth to the arms without the bulk of full gloves. You can make them as long as desired. Measure from base of fingers to about 3” from elbow. This will bring them right up under the edge of poncho. Our sample makes a glove about 10” around the arm and 12” long. You can adjust these measurements as desired.
Cast on 24 stitches. Work 8 rows in popcorn stitch.
Row 9-54: Work in Stockinette.
Bind off loosely with basic bind off (1 loop over 1).
Sew the seam to close in glove. Start at bind off edge, opposite end from popcorn, and sew aprox 1”. Leave thumb opening 1-1/2”. Sew from thumb opening to top of glove at popcorn edge. Knot securely. Make a 2nd glove.

While there are lots of ways to cast on a project, the cast on we learn first is the E-wrap Cast On. But most people do not like to use it because it is also the loosest cast on. Which, of course, leads to questions… Why is my cast on edge so loose? How can I make it tighter?
Most will answer by saying “use a different cast on”. There really is a cast on for every type of project. And we all have our favorite cast on. But most of those do have have enough stretch for some projects.
I want a stretchy cast on but the e-wrap cast on is still too loose making the edge messy! Not a question but is still a cry for help. Let’s get going on how to work a not-so-messy-tight-and-tidy e-wrap cast on!
How do I work an e-wrap cast on?
If you think that we are learning a new cast on, then you might be a bit disappointed. You will not be disappointed in the outcome of this e-wrap cast on when finished though.
While most already know how to work an e-wrap cast on, there are some that need to make a small adjustment in order to get a cleaner finish. And that small adjustment is how you use the slip knot to start.
If you are new to loom knitting, then here is how to work an e-wrap cast on.
First, make a slip knot. But do not put it on the first or last peg depending on if you are working a flat panel or in the round. You will want to use an anchor peg. If your loom doesn’t have an separate anchor peg, then you will need to use an adjacent peg to put the slip knot on. Then you will take it off after you get going on your project. Just be sure to not use it as as a loop on the cast on.
Why can I not use the slip knot as the first loop?
Besides not having a knot in your work, you will not be able to completely finish tightening up the cast on if you use the slip knot as the first loop.
If working a flat panel, most patterns are written so that the first row is worked from right to left. That means that the cast on must be worked from left to right.
This is my Peg 1.
This will be the last peg for my flat panel.
If you have more pegs than being used, place the slip knot next to the last peg so you are starting your cast on on the last peg of row 1.
If you are using all the pegs on a round loom, then you will need to actually place the slip knot on the first peg. Then start working the cast on to the right back around ending on the first peg.
In The Round
For hats and other projects worked in the round, place the slip knot on the last peg and then work the cast on from the first peg around from right to left.
How do you work the e-wrap cast on after the slip knot is placed?
Wrap each peg by bringing the working yarn around the back of the peg
to the front and around to the back again.
Then go the back of the next peg and wrap it in the same manner.
Continue wrapping all the pegs.
The pegs look like this when the cast on is finished.
And how the cast on looks from the top of the pegs.
Do I need to work the 1st row on a flat panel from right to left? Or work from right to left when working in the round? Why can I not go in the other direction?
Generally speaking, yes. While most of use are more comfortable working only one direction, patterns are written this way for a good reason. Consistency is one. Also certain stitches like cables are written this way so the stitches can be worked correctly.
A lot of patterns can be worked either way. But remember when you want to say it’s easier working in a certain direction: when working a flat panel, you must work in both directions. That cannot be avoided.
Therefore the sooner you start being consistent with working row 1 from right to left and always working in the round from right to left, the easier it will be to follow patterns that require it.
Do you work a row of stitches before starting row 1?
The e-wrap cast on is just that. Every peg is wrapped once. Once the number of pegs are wrapped, the cast on is complete, and row 1 is ready to be worked.
The cast on is NOT considered the first row. It’s more like the foundation to get started.
How do I tighten the cast on so it’s not messy and loose?
While you can tighten the cast on while it’s still on the loom, I wait until it’s off the loom before starting.
Now is when the magic happens.
On a flat panel, start on the end opposite from the tail. I hold my panel with the tail on the left side and work from the right to the left.
When working in the round, find the last stitch next to the tail which was the last stitch in each round. Then you will work from the left to the right around the piece to the tail.
I will continue to demonstrate on a flat panel.
Find the first loop and with your fingers or loom pick,
gently pull it snug from the edge.
Then find the next loop
and gently pull it snug.
Continue with each stitch until you get to the tail. With each stitch, the loop you are pulling will get bigger.
Then when the tail is reached, the loop itself will disappear as it’s pulled snugly. This is why the slip knot is not used as a cast on loop. You will not be able to tighten up that last loop with the tail if you used a slip knot.
The cast on will then be tidier but still stretchy.
I preferred the yarn over (double e-wrap) cast on for the longest time when I needed a cast on that is stretchy. But now I prefer to tighten the e-wrap cast on instead. It gives you more control over how tight you make the cast on edge but still has stretch.
I hope this helps so that everyone has a nice, tight, and tidy e-wrap cast on! Happy loom knitting!

**Pattern updated Jan 9, 2017 (specifically Row 5).
The stitch we’ll be working up this month is wonderful for its simple symmetry and lines. The bold repeating herringbone pattern makes this a wonderful stitch for deep texture and coziness! Worked in this winter white, it makes me think of snow clad forest branches. I can visualize this being used for hats, sweaters, scarves, socks, you name it! This would also work beautifully as a companion to the smaller herringbone published in the very first Stitchology column as interesting play of texture in any project.
In this monthly column we’re going to be working on some exciting new stitch patterns, as well as a few new techniques thrown in for good measure. My intention for our yarn play is to provide all the know-how for you to be able to work the new stitch; any charts, photos, or videos you may need; as well as a pattern to create an 8” x 8” square. As we go along in our looming journey, we should be able to create lovely pieced afghans with our squares, as I like to know that we’re going somewhere while swatching, don’t you? You can think of it as our Stitch Sample Afghan—a stitch dictionary right at your fingertips, keeping your legs warm, lol. ;) To find all the previous stitches in this column, simply click here and here.
Large Herringbone Square
Loom: Authentic Knitting Board Adjustable Hat Loom: 2 rounded pieces + 3 peg connectors, with pegs in all holes for a 3/8” gauge. The Sock Loom 2 or the All-n-One Loom could also be used.
Yarn: approx. 75 yards Worsted Weight Wool (Sample uses Berroco Vintage in mochi)
Notions: Loom tool, yarn needle, scissors. (Also helpful: peg markers, row counter & blocking pins/pad)
To work this pattern in the round for a hat, use the Repeating Pattern Rows chart, and make sure to read it from right to left for each row, rather than alternating sides each time. Also, cast onto your loom in a clockwise direction, using a number of pegs that is divisible by 16 sts—the number of stitches required for each pattern repeat.
For flat pieces of a greater size, begin with the Set Up Rows (increasing as necessary), then simply increase the number of Repeating Pattern Rows inside the garter stitch border for the length and width required. Complete by adding the same number of extra Finishing Rows at the end that were added at the beginning.
When the pattern uses the term “knit” or “k”, please use the true knit stitch or the u-stitch, not the e-wrap.
wy: working yarn
BO: bind off
