As you may already know, Rhondda started the CAL off with her first post using worsted weight yarn. For this CAL, I am using DK yarn in the form of Knit Picks Gloss DK* and a Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook*. If you have chosen to make the Poncho using Worsted Weight yarn please see Option 1 below. The totals indicated at the end of each row are the number of stitches for the row in this format (Option 1 Stitch Count, Option 2 Stitch Count). If you are using DK weight yarn, you will be following along with me and the Option 2 Stitch Counts.
Option 1: Worsted Weight (Red Heart Soft) – 6.0 mm (J). Instructions are for Child Size 6.
Option 2: DK Weight (Knit Picks Gloss) – 5.0 mm (H). Instructions are for Child Size 4.
