Pattern Details

Ponchetta is a small poncho, knit seamlessly from the bottom-up and makes a perfect little layering piece. Sized from XS to 2X, it features an easy yet interesting stitch pattern and straight-forward construction. It is worked flat from the hem to shoulders (on a long circular needle) and the 3 Needle Bind-Off Technique is used to seam up the left shoulder (a very easy bind-off technique if you have never used it before). Remaining stitches are then transferred to a smaller circular needle and worked in the round to create the cowl neck. It's suitable for beginners looking to branch out from scarves and cowls and more advanced knitters will enjoy the relaxing nature of this knit.

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)
