Hi, newbie from Australia
Help please.
I have been looking forever for a very basic 8 Ply pattern for a Poncho preferably knitted top down. Thanks in advance

This is as basic as you can get. I wrote out this pattern for someone who wanted a turtle neck poncho. You can also make it with a crew neck or just 4 to 6 rows (2 to 3 ridges) of garter stitch.

The sample was knit without changing to smaller needles for the garter stitch edge and that is what gives it a slightly ruffled look. If you go down 2 needles sizes for the edging, it will lie flat. Seed stitch edging also looks great, but again I recommend using the smaller needles for it.

Thanks for the pattern, Fran. I have some "greasy" wool from New Zealand in my stash, and this looks like a good use for it.

Seachange check out the Patons and Cleckheaton sites for free patterns too. If you join the kniterati (on either site) they should send you a free current pattern (you choose, easy, intermediate or hard). I don't know if they have ponchos available but worth looking through the patterns.
