Lucky Striped Poncho Pattern





The Design

“A toss of the dice!”

The Lucky Striped Poncho is a joyful, stripey riff on one of our favorite patterns! Inspired by our beloved Easy Folded Poncho, Kit got playful with random stripes, choosing colors and stripe widths by rolling a pair of dice. Allowing for this wonderful randomness, no two ponchos will ever be the same!

We knit our Lucky Striped Poncho in six colors of Rowan Felted Tweed, but your favorite, woolly, light DK-weight yarn will do wonderfully. (For extra colorful fun, try the ten, rainbow shades of the version we made to celebrate Jimmy Bean’s 20th anniversary!)

This 4-page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by Laura Gehring
  • Special Techniques:
    • “Doing Random”—or how we used dice to determine the striping sequence!
  • Sizing schematic
  • Instructions for seaming, finishing, and blocking your piece
