Adult Fairyland Poncho

Happy knitting Everyone! I hope you all enjoy the real summer fun with lots of sun and relaxing knitting. Today in spite of a hot summer weather I’m so happy to share my latest knitting design – Adult Fairyland Poncho.

Originally I did not have any plans to design an adult version of my child Fairyland Poncho but after so many requests and interest to it from FB knitters I’ve finally made it.
So as the child version the adult one also has a bottom up construction, modified raglan sleeves and cozy hood. The Poncho is designed to keep you away from autumn wind and cold. The button band at front is decorated with wooden buttons. It can be knitted with chunky or Aran weight yarn. I used Cascade Ecological wool from Cascede Yarns for my garment.

The poncho consists of five parts: back, left front, right front, left sleeve and right sleeve. All parts are knitted bottom up. After all parts are knitted and sewn together the stitches are picked up along the neck edge for the hood. After hood is completed and the top seam is sewn the stitches are picked up for the front (button) band.

Pattern is easy to follow and it consists of very detailed row-by-row instructions for each size, charts and pictures. It is written for two sizes S-M and L-XXL.
The pattern for the poncho has been successfully tested on Ravelry. Please have a look these beautiful projects from my lovely test knit team.

The dress is knitted in the round up to underarms, then front and back parts are knitted separately back and forth. After top parts of back and front are finished, the shoulder seams are closed and the stitches are picked up for the neck finishing.
