Mitered Diamond Poncho

Easy to make poncho is really a big square made up of mitered diamonds.
Using Noro Kureyon, and size 8 needles, cast on 41 stitches for each diamond and decrease on the three center stitches as follows: Right side only, slip one, knit two together, pass slipped stitch over.

Begin at square one, of course, and pick up stitches along finished edge of that square for #2.
Pick up 20 sts and cast on 21. Knit in garter or choose 3 rows stockinette and do the fourth in reverse stockinette (K on wrong side) to form this design.
For the wrist and neck triangles: Right side: decrease one stitch at each side as well as center decreases. Bind off when 5 stitches remain.
To make the collar: Pick up stitches around the edges of the neck triangles and knit for 5-10 rounds as desired.
Finishing: sew underarm seams from wrist to half way toward bottom points. Block! for size.


  1. Oh wow! Beautiful and I bet really warm. Just like Joseph's technicolor coat.

  2. Ohmygosh! That's beautiful, Melody! I'm still working on a mitered kerchief. My next thing to do was to try to make the mitered square with your line going down the diagonal in a different color. You're keeping me away from my quilting!!

  3. Whoa! Did you knit this in 2 days...or what? It's so bright and cheery!

    If you know how to work with mitered squares, the directions are included in the photo captions. This one has definitely gone into my "To-Do" queue. I have lots of Kureyon.

  6. Thank you so much for all these ideas! I love knitting squares and your pieces are wonderful! I will post you photos of the finished ones.

  7. Dear Melody,

    I popped on your blog via the mitered diamond poncho, which is beautiful by the way, but I'm more astonished by your quilt designs, it's real art! Still have to figure out which are your design and these of your sister, but I love the colours. As I'm a painter too, I can understand your love for the bright cheerful work, which makes happy to look at. Feel free to look at my website: or at my blog on which I'm doing a 365 days project on a white "quilt".
    I must say I'm really inspired by your work. Keep on publishing it, I love it.
    Warm creative regards,

    Love this pattern. I tried to clarify the directions for this pattern in my Ravelry project notes. My Ravelry name is PurlOfDelaware and I called the pattern Purple & Pink Mitered Diamond Poncho. I'm happy to fill in any gaps that might help you also knit this. LOVE it and will be making more.

  17. Love the shape of this poncho. Looks extremely comfy. Would it be possible to give the schematics of the final measurements. Such as size of the square and sleeves. Would like to try this using color block. The final size measurements would be great. Thank you.
