By Linda Whaley A classic cabled poncho that is an easy layer for extra warmth. The shape and size of this neat little poncho is designed so that it little ones can play and use their hands freely and easily. If you prefer a longer poncho just knit the next size up. This poncho is knitted in one piece with a seam at the centre front and another at the top of the hood. 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, and leave the other sizes safely in a folder for another project to save on ink. Use Chunky (US Bulky) wool for this poncho The Chunky ponchos shown have been knitted in the following yarns: Sirdar Click Chunky with wool (grey poncho) Deramores Vintage Chunky (purple poncho). Alternatively work with two strands of DK (US Light worsted) to achieve a beautiful Chunky cable knit using 6mm and 7mm needles as stated in the pattern. I recommend 2 strands of Rowan Pure Wool DK The green poncho has been knitted with 2 strands of DK pure wool. NOTE: You will require slightly more yarn if working with two strands of the DK wool as these ponchos are slightly heavier than those worked with 1 strand of Chunky. Please refer to the quantities required for two strands of DK below. Links to purchase all 3 recommended yarns are listed at the end of this pattern. Rowan Pure Wool DK (work with 2 strands) 0-6m =170gms 6-12m =220gms 1-2 yrs =280gms 2-3 yrs =330gms Sirdar Click Chunky with Wool and Deramores Vintage Chunky (work with 1 strand) 0-6m=130gms 6-12m =170gms 1-2yrs=230gms 2-3yrs=250gms BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit Purl Simple cable GAUGE 13sts = 10cms / 4 inches 18 rows = 5 cms/2 inches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 0-6 months 6-12 months 1-2 years 2-3 years PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Listed in Description

Linda Whaley My love of arts and crafts began as a child when my mother set up a craft club each week for myself and two of my friends. I was totally captivated and the seed was planted!. My lovely mother also taught me to knit. She had so much patience as I dropped my stitches more often than I knitted them for quite a while! I left school and studied at art school for 6 years. I spent my first two years experimenting with many arts and crafts. I finally chose textiles and spent a further 4 years studying knitwear design and left with an Hons Degree in Fashion and Textiles. I so loved my time at art school and I have had a wonderful career as a knitwear designer for the last 20 years. Once you've got the bug it stays with you for life!.If you would like to see all my knitting pattern collections, follow my blog and find out more do visit my website Happy Knitting! Linda Whaley
