Photo by I Like Knitting
Sometimes I receive emails with questions about my knitting patterns and request for further explanation on how to make certain aspect of different knitting patterns. I try to response within a reasonable amount of time and provide the information to help those who ask better understand how things were done and created.
Recently I received a question about the Harvest Poncho how the two rectangles are sewn together. The pattern itself provides schematic with drawing. However the schematic is a two dimensional and as another visual help I have decided to create this photo tutorial to make it more clear.
I have knitted two mini rectangles of what the two actual rectangles will look like when finished. For a better understanding I made the two rectangles in two different colors.
Position the two rectangles as in this picture, making sure that the right sides are facing the same direction.
Sew the two rectangles together. along the edge using a mattress stitch. After this you have a “L” shape. In the picture bellow you can see the first seam in the left corner where the red arrows points.
The second seam will take place between the points A and B along the edge. In the picture above you can see the orange rectangle with WS facing up and the grey rectangle RS facing up. The orange rectangle RS is on the bottom at the moment. In the picture bellow you can see that the edge is sewn and the right sides are on the outside and the wrong sides are inside of the poncho.
After this seam you are almost finished.
One side will look like this :
The other side will look like this:
Weave in the ends and enjoy your Harvest Poncho.
