"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Open Weave Knit Poncho

Updated August 02, 2019

An oversized, relaxed fit makes this a very comfortable poncho from Authentic Knitting Board. The fast and design design makes it perfect for beginning knitters.

Open Weave Knit Poncho

Size: sml/m or (lg-X-lg)
Stitches: Stockinette and Rib


  • Yarn: Yarn used is JAEGER Luxury Tweed 50 gm skeins, Yarn needed=5 (6) skeins or 900 (1050) yards.
  • 28” knitting board with spacers set at 1” (4” bolts)
  • Knit hook
  • Crochet hook
  • Large sewing needle

Gauge: 2 st=1” 3 rows=1”


  • Shoulder to Hemline will be aprox 22” (25”).
  • Hemline will be aprox. 40” (46”) across the front of finished poncho.

Front and Back of Poncho are the same. (Knit 2)


  1. Cast on 74 (84) stitches. This means one complete circular and hook over. Lay anchor yarn across stitches. This should be a contrasting color of yarn aprox 3 times the length of your cast on stitches. Let the ends of yarn dangle below the board at both ends. Tie on these 2 ends of yarn together under the board.
  2. Work in rib stitch for 12 (18) rows. (see instructions at end of pattern) Be sure to start each row of hooking at end of board opposite the yarn. This helps keep both edges of knitting even. Weave with a loose hand.
  3. Change to stockinette stitch. This is only a change of weaving pattern.
  4. Knit in stockinette stitch for 30 (40) rows.
  5. Bind off the board with crochet hook. Bind off at the cast on stitches edge.
  6. BIND OFF: Start at end opposite the yarn. Slip crochet hook into first 3 loops (st 1 front and back, st 2 front). Now pull the loop, closest to hook, thru the other 2. With only 1 loop on hook, pick up 2 more loops which will be st 2 back, and st 3 front. Pull loop closest to hook thru other 2. Now pick up next 2 loops and continue across the board until the piece is free of the board. Pull tail of yarn thru the last loop on hook. Do the same process to the stitches on the anchor yarn, and then, remove the anchor yarn from knitting.
  7. Now make a second piece for the poncho back.

Shoulder Strips.

  1. Knit (2) shoulder pieces. This poncho is designed to have a separate strip down the shoulder creating a seam on front and back of poncho. This will also add support to the knit as it flows from the shoulders. The neckline is formed between the shoulder strips by simply leaving the seams un-sewn.
  2. Cast on the same number of st for the shoulder strip as you did to cast on for the poncho front.
  3. Knit in Rib stitch for 6 (10) rows. Bind off. Make 2. Photo does not show this shoulder strip. If you are not using the shoulder strip, you would just sew the front of poncho to the back of poncho.

Sewing it Together:

  1. The rib edge of your pieces will be the bottom of the poncho. Sew shoulders to stockinette edges.
  2. Sew one long side of shoulder strip to front, long side of poncho . Do this with a whip stitch.
  3. Sew one long side of shoulder strip to back, long side of poncho.
  4. Lay front and back together on flat surface with rib edges as your hemline.
  5. Sew the side seams together from the hemline up to arm opening. Arm opening should be 10” (12)” from top of shoulder.
  6. Now sew the shoulder seams together leaving the head opening between the 2 strips.
  7. This opening can vary based on your preference between 12” to 15” or more.
  8. Not using the shoulder strips? Just sew the front to back leaving the head opening.
  9. Stockinette Stitch: Wrap yarn starting with needle 1, top board, down to needle 2 on bottom row. Weave back and forth across the 2 rows of needles skipping every other needle. At end, turn board around, and continue weaving, picking up the needles that were skipped the first pass. Work only on the needles that were used at cast on. Hook over all needles starting with the needles at end of board opposite the yarn attachment.
  10. Ribbing Stitch: Wrap yarn starting with needle 1, top board, down to needle 3 on bottom row. Weave back and forth across the 2 rows of needles skipping every other needle.
  11. Last 2 needles will be done consecutively. At end, turn board around, and continue weaving, picking up the needles that were skipped the first pass. Be sure to cover all needles with weaving. Now hook over all needles starting with the needles at end of board opposite the yarn attachment.
