This pattern contains instructions for a Poncho and Hat to fit 6 months to 7 years approx.  This poncho is made in two rectangular pieces and joined together.  Because there is no shaping and it is a 12 row repeat it should be fairly straight forward for a beginner.

This cable has to be one of my favourites – it makes such an impact.  It is a lot easier than it looks.  Knitted over 12 rows it has only one cable row!  The testers loved it and felt it knitted up super quick.  I would recommend reading the pattern through before commencing to get a real feel for it and if you are new, to familiarise yourself with layout.  A lot of time has been spent simplifying and my ethos is, why give loads of instructions when it can be condensed – keep it simple.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.  This pattern is suitable for a beginner comfortable with cables and was updated 24.05.2021.

Size Guide:  The pattern for a Poncho and Hat has instructions to fit 6 months – 7 years. That hat is designed for either one or two pompoms.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special Aran which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox Aran for this pattern.
