Step 2: Knit 2 panels that are 33" long (they will be 20" wide). This is equivalent to about 110 rows in each panel.

Poncho for the XL Round Knifty Knitter


  1. I am busywith this poncho but because it,s for my young daughter, the shop told me to do two panels of 25 pegs and 72cm long. I have done this, but cast off the first panel from the round loom before starting the 2nd panel. Now I am not sure how to progress. Should I have left the 1st panel on the loom so would end up with 2 panels on the round loom at the same time? What next? Your advise would be appreciated! Alison

  2. Working on a round loom. As it is for my young daughter, I was told to only cast on 25 pegs per panel. When I finished my 1st panel, I cast off, then have done my 2nd panel on the round loom. Not sure now whether I should have left the 1st panel on so I am left with two panels on the round loom at the same time? Not sure how to progress and how to sew together.
