I am knitting a poncho pattern for a child. The pattern says child 2-6 yrs old.
16 st= 4" worsted weight yarn size 9 needles
The pattern calls for starting at neck with 84 stitches and increasing 8 stitches every row with an increase that is k1-p1-k1 into a single stitch you do this 4 times each row until it measures what you want. Pattern says she made it to 14".
That is what I want to make it to. The only problem is I think that if I keep increasing 8 stitches every row the poncho is going to grow way too big. I am only at 3" and it already 36" wide. It is making a beautiful scallop but if I keep going this is going to get way too wide. Does anyone have any suggestions.
The original spacing between the increases started at every 20 stitches.
According to the pattern the first row became 92 stitches and the second row became 100 stitches and this continues until the end increasing each row.
I am at 6" and I have 213 stitches already on the needle.
The instructions say rep last 2 rows working ST st and increasing in center st of previous increases.
Am I reading something wrong?
This is a free pattern on the internet.
