Knit this very cute chunky knit cabled poncho with a cosy hood for chilly days. A great design for babies and young children, as you can slip it on and off so easily when baby is fast asleep in the stroller or car seat.
The shape and size of this neat little poncho is designed so that little ones can play and use their hands freely. if you prefer a longer poncho just knit the next size up.
This poncho can be knitted with EITHER/ 1 strand of Chunky that recommends that recommends 6.5-7mm (US#10) needles. OR/ 2 strands of DK (US Light Worsted)
I recommend the following: 1 strand of Sirdar Click Chunky (grey poncho) 1 strand of Deramores Vintage Chunky (purple poncho) OR 2 strands of DK wool (green poncho). I recommend Rowan Pure Wool DK.
This poncho pattern has instructions for the following sizes:
0-6 months 6-12 months 1-2 years 2-3 years
This poncho is knitted flat on a pair of long (40cms) single pointed needles. The shaping is integral to the knit which means you knit this poncho as one piece and only have to sew up one seam at the centre front and another across the top of the hood. I also give instructions to help you sew a smooth invisible seam.
To ensure this pattern is easy to read, each size has separate detailed instructions. Just select and print the pages for the size you are knitting along with the instructions for All Sizes on pages 1, 2, 12 and 13....and leave the other sizes safely in a folder for another project to save on ink.
