Phoebe is a lightweight poncho that is perfect to dress up your summer wardrobe. It is quick and easy to make, so it’s a great beginner project. Phoebe is a poncho that only increases on one side, so it can be worn sideways for an asymmetrical look, or long in front and short in back.

  1. I’m looking forward to making this ! I find the simple patterns often look the most beautiful. thanks for sharing !

    • I can’t help you becuz I am having the same problem. Row two, finished, shows no increase. It is a shame – I have done it three times – this is so beautiful and I really want to make it.

      • The increase is at the beginning of the round – Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch 2), dc in same sp, This creates the increase, I’m not sure how to be clearer.

  2. Hello
    I just love your poncho.
    I’m a starter and would like to do this model for my 9 years old daughter.How many chains should I start with ?
    mustn’t the ” net holes ” that we create be smaller ?How can we change that?
    Can you help me?
    Thank you

    • You can decrease the number of stitches by 3, 6, or 9, but I wouldn’t go much smaller. Then just make it to the size you want by stopping when it is big enough.

          • Thank you. I’m working on it and it’s looks great!!!
            I see one box increases every row. Do I have to see two boxes increases?

          • Your pattern says “4” not “5.” Please confirm, which is ideal to obtain the lovely look of the piece in your pictures. Is this why my center “point” is slanting to one side/angle?

          • Follow the pattern, I must have made a typo in the comment. If you center is slanting you must be increasing on only one side of the center, make sure you are following the pattern.

    • The center should fall straight down, it is the point of an equal angle, so there is an increase on both sides of the center.

      • How do you increase on both sides? When I get to the end of the row I sl st and dc in the sp then I dc in the next dc. I get an angler line.

        • Ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch 2), dc in same sp,
          That is the increase. The first 2 chain count as a dc, then there is the ch 2 which is the center front, then one more dc – this gives you an increase of 1 dc on each side of the center front ch-2. The rest of the way around you dc in each dc and ch 2 between every dc.
