Temptation Poncho and Hat Set

23.10.15
The weather is getting colder and colder so it is time for warm and cozy knits. Please welcome my new super cozy knitted design - Temptation Poncho and Hat set. I knitted this set for my little daughter to keep her warm and stylish this winter season.



Temptation set is one of my favorite knitted garments that I made for Sophie. She loves it so much. She has received many compliments and smiles from people around to her new outfit.





I really love this beautiful cable pattern with bobbles in the center.  I made a large thick pompom to decorate the hat.



This set is knitted with Cascade Ecological wool and size 9 (5.5 mm) knitting needles. Poncho is knitted back and forth and the hat is knitted in the round.





I wrote a knitting pattern for this set for the following sizes: 2–3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years; 10-12 years. It was test knitted on Ravelry. Thank you so much ladies for your help and feedback :)

    1. Hi Ellen. Front, back and sleeves of the poncho are knitted back and forth on straight needles, then neck is knitted on circular needles in the round. Please let me know if you need my further help. Kind regards.

  2. Hi. I am wanting to knit your poncho but have a couple questions…. IT says that the first 8 rows are worked in short rows. Is that the very first knit 7 rows after casting on if i'm knitting the largest size or is that only after the knit 7 that I start the short rows?

    1. Hi Dana, Thank you for getting in touch. Please knit 7 rows first and then start working in short rows technique as explained in the pattern.

  3. ok thank you!! How come then only rows 1-6 say to wrap next stitch and turn? but prior says first 8 rows worked in short? I'm a fairly new knitter so still figuring things out...

  4. Because the row 7 starts in the middle of the knitting row from RS so it is a short row. The row 8 is a WS row which matches the previous row. Then from the row 9 you need to continue knitting normally.
    If you have more questions please sent me a message to email which stated in the pattern so I can reply to you quicker.

  10. Hello I am having a problem finishing on the circular needles. I am knitting size 2-3 and cannot see how to proceed once I have initially decreased 2 stitches leaving 106 stitches as knitting k2,p3 rows do not produce the rib I expected

    1. Hello
      I’m sorry for the confusion. But looks like it is a typo in the brackets. You need to work this row as stated in the pattern: * k34, k2tog, repeat from * across the round to end. You need to decrease 3 stitches. So the quantity of stitches would be multiple by 5 and you can continue ribbing as k2, p3.

    1. Hi,
      Thank you for getting in touch.
      Please follow the steps below:
      1. Cast on the required number of stitches for your size;
      2. Knit 5 (5; 6; 6; 7) rows for the border;
      3. Place 10 stitch markers as explained in the pattern. Do not work or slip any stitches at this stage;
      4. Start working row-by row instructions from Row 1 very carefully as written. Also please see the section “SHORT ROWS (WRAP AND TURN)”. Rows 1 to 8 are short rows, so you don’t need to work all stitches in these rows.
      Please contact me via email shown in the pattern for further assistance.
      Happy knitting!

  13. Please explain better the short rows. I have read the replies above and the pattern several times and still cannot figure out where to turn the knitting i.e. - what number of stitches are included in the short row and where do they start. Thank you. I am very frustrated with the poor instructions regarding this. Thank you.

    1. Dear Chill,

      Thank you for getting in touch.

      The pattern has very detailed row-by-row instructions and photo-tutorial for short rows. It looks a bit complicated when you reading it. But you shouldn’t have any problems as soon as you start knitting and following it very carefully.

      Please follow the steps below:
      1. Cast on the required number of stitches for your size;
      2. Knit 5 (5; 6; 6; 7) rows for the border;
      3. Place 10 stitch markers as explained in the pattern. Do not work or slip any stitches at this stage;
      4. Next 8 rows are short rows. Please start working row-by row instructions from Row 1 very carefully as written and turn your knitting for the next row when pattern asks for it (end of Row1, row 2 and etc).
      For example, work Row 1 up to wrap stitch, wrap it and slip it back to left hand needle (this stitch is not included into next row, but it should be wrapped with the working yarn in order to prevent large holes). Turn you knitting for next row. Follow the instruction for the next row the same way.
      Also please see the section “SHORT ROWS (WRAP AND TURN)”.

      Please contact me via email shown in the pattern for further assistance.

      Happy knitting!

  16. I started knitting this and I am really confused about the short row 1-8 , if you don't work all the stitches in each row , what happens to the un-worked stitches

    1. Hello Brenda,
      Thank you for getting in touch.
      You need to ignore the stitches not worked in rows 1 to 8. Please just knit the row as written in the pattern and turn your knitting for the next row when pattern asks to do so. You will work these stitches later step by step in every row. Please just follow the instruction very carefully.
      Please let me know if you need my further assistance.
      Warm wishes,
      Tanya
