RED HEART® Ltd. "Foxy™", Art. E724, 100% Polyester (1.76 ounce/89 yard ball): 2 Balls No. 9996 Bluesy.

Circular Knitting Needle: 9mm [US 13] - 29".

Stitch marker; yarn needle; fabric glue.

GAUGE: The stitches are loose on the large needles and the gauge will vary as the knitted tube is pulled lengthwise to be worn as a scarf or the tube is opened up and the fabric is pulled width-wise to be worn as a hood or poncho.

Cast on 60 stitches loosely; join in a circle to work in rounds, taking care that stitches are not twisted. Place the stitch marker between first and last stitches to mark beginning and end of rounds.

Knit every round until all but 6 yards have been used.

Bind off loosely as follows: K1, * yo, slip the K st over the yo, K1, slip the yo over the K st; rep from * around; yo, slip the K st over the yo. Fasten off.

Weave in ends on the wrong side. Apply a dab of fabric glue to woven area and allow to dry; trim ends.

Hints & Tips:

Be sure to cast on and bind off loosely in order to wear the item as a poncho. Use a larger needle if necessary.

If it is too difficult to be sure that the stitches are not twisted before you begin to work in the round, just work three rows back and forth (knit one row, purl one row, then knit one row) first, then join at the end of the third row. By then you will be able to determine more easily that the stitches are not twisted. When the piece is completed, be sure to stitch that opening closed and weave in the end.

ABBREVIATIONS: K = knit; mm = millimeters; st = stitch; yo = yarn over; * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.
