Ballet Paintbox Poncho By Marji LaFreniere Finished Measurements: 2 years (4 years, 6 years) Materials: Koigu KPPPM Pencil Box The Ballet [10 x 25g demi skeins 87yd (80m)] 100% Merino wool (You may need an additional partial skein for size 6), 4 stitch markers – one unique colour for BOR(beginning of round) 3mm / US3 and 3.5mm / US 4 circular needles 16” long 3mm / US3 and 3.5mm / US 4 circular needles 24 or 32” long, or size to obtain gauge Gauge: Approximately 26 sts x 38 rows = 4” Pattern Notes: The poncho is made from the neck down, beginning with the neckband lining. Increases are made at the shoulders and the center front and back, but shoulder increases end once the shoulders have reached the appropriate width. You can easily customize your size by extending shoulder increases or ending them sooner. Colors are intro-

duced with a row alternating “old” and “new” colors. If you are making the largest size, you MAY run out of a color before the prescribed number of rows, in which case, just start the next color sooner, and add something at the end. Circle the numbers that correspond to your size. Go through your colors, labeling from 1-10, starting at the top, with colors 9 & 10 used as trim. (Remember, add in a little something from your stash, just in case, if you’re making the size 6)
