Difficulty – Intermediate, experience with Broomstick Lace strongly recommended, if you need a refresher on how to work the stitch I have included a video tutorial below.

Special Notes:  This pattern is worked in series of 16 stitches.  If you want to make the initial cowl larger or smaller you will need to increase/decrease by 16 CHS.

When making the Broomstick Lace rows, the part when you are taking the loops off of the hook, you will increase each row by 16 stitches (4 additional Broomsticks)

CH63 + CH2  (the CH2 will count as first DC)

Cowl

Row 1: DC in 3rd CH from hook, DC in each st around, Join with sl st in first DC (64DC)

Row 2:  CH1, fpHDC in first stitch (CH2), bpHDC in next, *fpHDC, bpHDC*, repeat from *to* around. Join with sl st in first fpHDC (64HDC)

Row 3: Repeat row 2 until you get desired height for the cowl

Join the tail of your first CH to the last CH.

Poncho

Row 1: CH1, fpHDC in same as joining and in each stitch around. Join with sl st in first fpHDC

Row 2: CH1, HDC in same as joining and in next 2 sts, work 2HDC in next st, *HDC in each of the next 3 sts, work 2HDC in next st; repeat from * around (80 HDC)

Option – You can continue to work rows to make it larger over the shoulders before you start the Broomstick lace. Right now there are 80 stitches. This is the formula is – 80/16 = 5 which means you will work 1 st in next 4 sts, and 2 sts in 5th st.  The next row would be 96/16 = 6, work 1 st in the next 5 sts and 2 in the 6th st.

Row 3: working with 50mm knitting needle, pull up loops

Row 4: Take off 4 loops, pull up a loop and CH1 and work 4SC in loops, *take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* once more,  *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops , repeat from *to* once more, ^*take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*,  repeat from *to* twice more, *take off 4 loops and work 6SC in loops*, repeat from *to* once more^, repeat from ^ to^ twice more. Join with SLST in first SC

Row 5: CH1, SC in same as joining and in each stitch around. Join with SLST in first SC

Row 6:  Pull up loops

Row 7: Take off 4 loops, pull up a loop and CH1 and work 4SC in loops, *take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* twice more, take off 4 loops and work 8SC in loops, ^*take off 4 loops and work 4SC in loops*, repeat from *to* four more times, take off 4 loops and work 8SC in loops*^, repeat from ^to^ twice more, take off last 4loops and work 4SC in loops. Join with SLST in first SC

Row 8: CH1, SC in same as joining and in each stitch around. Join with sl st in first SC
