Funny Papers Poncho

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

The Funny Papers Poncho is made entirely in garter stitch, making it an easy pattern to complete. It uses a provisional cast on to create a seamless look in the finished piece. The large needles make the stitches open so that it is slightly transparent. Dress it up or down, it works for many occasions!

ETA: Above is a super quick sketch to give you the idea of how this goes together. I plan on making something nicer, but hopefully this helps for now.

  1. I too am confused by the part where you fold the piece into a loop so that you first knit the next row then continue knitting into the pco. Do you fold it in half? Do you fold it so that it lines up with the side edge of the beginning pco (or I guess it would be the last cast on stitch) which would then make it wider as you incorporate the pco stitches? I hope that makes sense! I love the way it looks and would love to make it. Thank you.

  2. I still don’t understand where the fold is. Do i knit into the fold somehow or pick up from the cast on stitches? Perhaps a sketch would be helpful. Thanks! I’m stuck at the 30 inches.

    • After finishing the 30″, hold onto the last stitch you knit, then run your hand down the edge of your 30″ until you reach the pco. Grab the first pco stitch on that corner and start picking up the stitches from there all the way across the pco. This will give you your fold and create your new row.

      • How does the 20” you then Knit fit into the pattern? This doesn’t make sense to me. This is very confusing! Would love to make this pattern!

        Thanks

  3. Hate to sound like a broken record, but I have the same confusion. So, are you then ending up knitting with 160 stitches on your needle for the last 20 inches? Love the look of your creation!

  4. Does this pattern make a cylindrical tube that goes over your head body with a flap that hangs off one end?
    We need a video of this loop business, PLEASE.

    • I added a picture at the bottom of the post. That should help. It makes a loop with the flap hanging off the whole thing.

  5. What a great poncho! My husband says it’s the nicest one I have ever made. I used worsted weight though, so I told my girlfriend that it’s the Country Girl version of your City Girl poncho. Now I have to make one for her too! I am not on Facebook so I can’t send you a picture. Be safe and happy, June

    • That’s awesome!!!

      If you’re on Ravelry you can enter it as a project and then link the pattern. Then send me a message on Ravelry to let me know. 🙂

      • I will give it a try. Will wait until I have the second done and send both. She wants me to do hers in mistake stitch. June

        • Jessie I can not send you the pictures of the two ponchos because they were made almost entirely with Red Heart yarn and I don’t want to upset you further. I totally understand how you feel and agree that statements that are not followed with action are not acceptable. Best Wishes to you and yours, June

          • June – I would never expect others to do things just because I do. Plus, it’s not like I’m tossing everything I made with Spinrite yarn in the past. I would still love to see what you’ve created with my patterns. Yarn should really bring us all together! <3
