Knitting a Poncho Scarf
This lesson will teach you how to knit a poncho scarf. You will learn about yarn weights, corresponding needle sizes, getting the gauge you’re looking for and how to hold your needles. We will teach you how to ‘caste-on’ and ‘bind-off’ and everything in between. The end result is a unique-looking poncho scarf that is easy and painless to create.
Note: You will need 2 skeins of wool in either wool or acrylic, in worsted weight, coupled with one skein of very fine yarn to mix in with it.
