I had 2 skeins of this gorgeous Lion Brand organic cotton yarn that
needed a project. My mom swears that ponchos are back "in" so
I decided to knit my 5-year-old a poncho she can wear in the Spring.
Keep reading below for the free poncho knitting pattern....
I wrote this pattern as I knitted the poncho - so if you have any
problems with it - please let me know! I used Lion Brand
Organic Cotton Yarn and 4 1" buttons. The buttons are for
decoration only and are not functional - the poncho slips on over
the head. Here is the free
knitting pattern for a 4-6 year old:
Gauge = 13 sts/4” in St st.
Size 10 needles
Lion Brand, Nature’s Choice organic cotton yarn
Fits 4-6 year-old
Cast on 60 Sts.
Garter stitch for 1” ending with a RS
Next Row and All WS Rows: K5, Purl
until 5 from end, K5
Row 2: (RS) K15, M1, PM, M1, K15,
repeat to end (66 sts)
Row 4 and all RS rows: K to Marker, M1,
PM, M1, repeat to end
Once you get to 114 Sts, do increases
every other row 4 times.
Continue straight in St st for 1”
(remember to do the 5 sts of garter stitch at each end)
Begin garter stitch for 1” for bottom
Bind off and weave in all loose ends. Overlap the
front edges and sew on 4 buttons.
