A shirt under a sweater, and on top of that a vest, then maybe a jacket or blazer or best of all, a poncho. This all-weather poncho is the perfect answer for warming up the season.

You knit it on two circular needles-one 29 inches and the other a 16-inch. You'll find it will work along quickly, once you've worked your test piece. This is simple: Using color A (dark gray), cast on 12 sts on the' 16-inch circular needle. Work back and forth in stockinette st for 16 rows. Your test piece should measure 4 incfie square.

If it doesn't, then try different size needles. If the piece is too small, use larger needles; if it's bigger than 4 inches then you must work with smaller needles. I continue to emphasize the proper gauge, because it's the basis for turning out garments that fit and look professional. When your gauge is right, then your finished poncho or sweater, will look the way you want it to, simply by following directions. This particular poncho, with instructions available for sizes 8 right up to 18, is knit in Reynolds Icelandic Lopi yarn, in three shades of natural color gray.

The poncho is finished with a smart, easy-to-hook fringe, that you work around the bottom edge with a Size hook. So put a poncho on your knitting list. Directions are available by just sending 50 cents to Stitchin' Time, co your local paper, Radio City Station, Box 503, New York, N.Y. 10021. Ask for Stitchin' Time leaflet S327.

Include your name, address and zip code. tackled ultra-sinple garments and the cable-knits have always looked a bit difficult. Can you help me keep my overdue promise? Thank you. V. Pearl River, New York.

Dear V. much easier than it looks. Don't worry, your daughter will be wearing that cable-knit sweater very soon. When working cables, unless otherwise specifically directed in the instructions, start row count as follows: purled, or wrong side of work row one. This will assure that every odd-numbered row will come on the wrong side of the work and every even-numbered row will come on the right side of the work.

This method of counting rows should make the work less confusing when making the cable row itself, as it will automatically throw the cable onto the even-numbered row and on the right side of the work. When making a cable, slip the desired number of sts onto the cable-stitch holder, keeping the curve in the holder down. When the sts are on, turn the needle-points of the holder down and very lightly stick the left-hand point" of the holder into the knitting to keep it firmly in position. Work the next number of sts called for and then, instead of knitting the sts from the holder, which many knitters often find awkward, slip the sts from the holder back onto the left-hand needle and then knit them off from this.
