Baby Twizzler Poncho

This knitted baby poncho pattern is as cute as it is easy to make.

What you need

size 9-12 months.

Size 10 needles (size 6 metric)
1 ball of fashion yarn (candy floss,powder puff)


This pattern has a matching hat.

This poncho is knit in garter stitch.

Cast on 1 st increase the 1st of every row until 50 sts are on your needle.

The next step is to make the front neck opening.

Next row knit 32sts. turn and continue without increasing for 8 rows. Push the stitches to the end of your needle and leaving a long length, and then break off the yarn.

Now pickup the remaining 18 sts and garter stitch 4 rows. Knit across all stitches (50 sts).

Now begin the next step by decreasing the 1st stitch of every row until only 1 stitch remains. Cast off.

    Hi I have been knitting your 1
    stitch poncho and like a previous comment struggling with the neck opening it just isn’t big enough. How do I work out to make it larger? I am visiting from South Africa and knitting it for my granddaughter and would love to finish it before I go home.
    Many thanks

    Help confused ! (newbie knitter) cast on 1 stitch ? how many rows knitted how can you increase on 1 stitch ? please help because it looks great .

  4. this pattern needs better directions as I was only able to get to the neck and then it looks like the neck gets sewn shut- I had to stop as the directions are not clear enough- I was bummed as it is a super cute poncho!!!!
