Diamond Poncho is a warm, chunky poncho for keeping warm when outside - or why not wear it indoors as an extra layer? It has a diamond border pattern on a simple background.
Cosy and fashionable, it is the perfect knit for extra warmth when needed.
It is an easy pattern - suitable for the confident beginner and yet interesting enough for the experienced knitter who likes to watch the world go by or natter with friends and knit at the same time. There is no shaping and all patterns are created using the knit and purl stitch.
Instructions are written line by line, in English, with British/USA terms. There is a chart to help with the diamond pattern section, which can be used as a visual aid (to help with the written instructions), or on it's own. There is also a diagram and photos to help with assembling your poncho.
Photographed on a UK size 8, US size 4 model, chest 81cm/32in. Fits from approx. 76cm/30in up to approx. 122cm/48in chest.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 8 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
