“14 Carat” Poncho

Pattern FREE posted progressively during the event
Michelle's knit alongs (or KALs) are mystery knit alongs (or MKALs). That means that there are no preliminary photos and only the more general of descriptions of the finished project.
One draw for knitters is in seeing what Michelle's great tutorials and instructions are guiding you toward. Those tutorials are worth far more than the price of admission—which is, of course, nada. Zip. Zero. Michelle's KALs are sponsored by Skacel Collection, distributor of HiKoo Yarns.
The pattern will be released in four weekly installments, so each Thursday the next part of the pattern is revealed. Thus the mystery! This KAL started on Thursday, April 7th, but you are not too late to get in on the fun!
The pattern and videos will be available at where you can post questions as well. You can also connect via the Knit Purl Hunter Ravelry group. Questions are typically answered daily. The video lessons along with the forums let knitters of all skill levels participate and get whatever help they need. It's like having a knitting tutor 24/7!

For this spring poncho, Michelle has very wisely chosen HiKoo's light-weight CoBaSi. Drawing its name from its fiber contents, CoBaSi is a fingering weight blend of cotton, bamboo, and silk with a bit of elastic nylon to give the otherwise very drapey yarn quite a lot of bounce—so much so, in fact, that CoBaSi is also great for summery socks.
Fiber Content 55% Cotton, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk,
21% Elastic Nylon
Yardage / Weight 220 yds in 50g
Gauge 26–32 sts over 4″ on US 1–4 [2.25–3.50mm]
Care Instructions Machine Wash, Gentle, Cold. Dry Flat.
It's the same yarn as CoBaSi, but it's dyed very differently. With the highlights and shadows of kettle-dyed yarns, CoBaSi Tonal brings a bit of color variation to the table.

It's the same yarn as CoBaSi, but CoBaSi Multi is dyed in vivid and neutral variegated colorways.
