White Poncho - by Loulou Pirotte
Size: petite (Bust - waist - hips: 88 - 68 - 88 cm)
Machine: Brother electronic standard gauge KH970
Gauge: 10 cm x 10 cm
Circular rows: 31.5 stitches x 80 rows (or 160 carriage passes)
One repeat of the pattern consists of 8 rows with 3 strands of the 2/28 NM followed by 12 rows with 1 strand of the fur yarn.
I designed a 20 x 20 pattern in Stitch Designer, using colour for the fur stripes so that, while in Interactive Knitting, I would get the “Change A” instruction when I needed to change yarns.
Knitting method: W
Stitch pattern and shape are integrated.
The shape was designed in Original Pattern Drafting.
The file has 8 pieces. The cuffs and circular bands are not represented.
Draw the neckline: add 2 points whose distance is the width of the neckline. Delete the top point and use the curve tool to draw the neckline. Please see comments below.
I was happy with the neckline as it had been drawn in front worn BUT:

Side note: I like to take my shapes into Interactive Knitting and “knit them manually” before starting the actual knitting, to make sure everything is OK.
By “knit manually”, I mean using Interactive Knitting *without the machine*, i.e. using the UP arrow tool.
