Gauge: 10 sts x 14 rows in stockinette st = 10 x 10 cm.

Garter st, when knitting flat: Knit all sts, all rows.
Garter st, when knitting in the round: *Rnd 1, knit. Rnd 2, purl.* Repeat from * - *.

Tip for decreasing: Dec 1 st as follows:
Before the marker: K 2 tog.
After the marker: Slip 1, K 1, pass the slipped st over.

Poncho: Knit the front and back separately, back and forth on the needles, until after the split at the sides.

Front: Cast on 81-85-91 sts with double strands of yarn. Switch to single-strand and knit 2 rows of garter st. Change to stockinette st, but keep 1 st at each side in garter st throughout. When the work measures 15 cm, put it aside.

Back: Cast on and knit as for the front.

Body: Put the front and back on the same circular needles = 162-170-182 sts. Place a marker at each side. Continue with stockinette st over all sts and at the same time dec 1 st at each side of the markers at each side (4 sts decreased each time) 16-16-16 times every 2 cm, then 8-10-12 times every cm = 66-66-70 sts. The work now measures approx. 55-57-59 cm. Continue knitting on these sts until the work measures 71-74-77 cm. Now put 11-11-13 sts at the center front on a st holder for the neck and knit the rest of the work back and forth on the needles. Put 1 st on the st holder at each side every other row 7-7-7 times = 41-41-43 sts remain on the needles and 25-25-27 sts are on the st holder. Continue knitting until the work measures 85-88-91 cm. Mark the center st, then dec 1 st at each side of the marked st 4 times every other row = 33-33-35 sts remain on the needles.

Assembly: Pick up approx. 72-78 sts on short circular needles around the hood (including the sts on the needles and the sts from the st holder at the front). Knit 2 rows of garter st, bind off with double yarn.
