I made 3 of these ponchos in 3 days. They knit up fast!
These are the first 2, for Fiona and Celeste.
This is Laila's:
I modified the collar. I made a rolled collar for 8 rows; then an eyelet row; the 2 knit rows; then the increase rows; then the lace rows.
Threaded a satin ribbon through the eyelets to help
the mother's tighten the collar if they so choose:
The KIDDIE CAPELET, a free pattern on Ravelry!
However, I modified it to fit older girls, not just toddlers.
YARN: Needful Arts Geranium, color 6050 Strawberries 'n Cream. On sale at Elann for $16.75 per bag of 10.
I used 5.5 sk on the larger poncho, and 4.5 sk for the smaller ponchos.
Yarn is 104 yds per sk.
The large poncho is 22" and the smaller ponchos are 17".
If you want my formula for the modified pattern (made larger to fit older girls), message me.
