Vanilla Cloud Set is my latest knitted project for my little daughter. It consists of warm and cozy poncho and matching hat. I knitted this set with braided cables and moss stitch pattern. You can buy a knitting pattern for this set in one of my pattern stores.
The design of poncho is stylish and simple. It has raglan sleeves, round bottom line and big ribbed collar. The poncho is knitted bottom up as four parts and collar is knitted in the round before all parts are sewn together. The hat is knitted in the round and has one top seam.
Firstly, I wanted to decorate the hat with two small pompoms but after trying-on I decided leaving it as it is. I love this funny cat look. The hat also can be wearied with one or two cables at the front. Both looks are great.
I used chunky Cascade Ecological wool and US 9 (5.5mm) knitting needles to knit this set. So it was quick and fancy project. I happy with the result and my little model too!
