Big Temptation Poncho

14.3.16
Last year I designed Temptation Poncho and Hat Set for my daughter. It was her favourite outfit for the past autumn. I love it so much so this year I decided to make a similar poncho for myself. So, please welcome Temptation Poncho Adult version.



Today was a lovely sunny day so we used our chance to take some pictures and had some fun together with my daughter.



I really love the idea of the matching outfit for mother and daughter. I think we will wear our ponchos often this spring for the family walks around. Also I think it would one of the best garments for the country side adventures.



For my poncho I used the same yarn Cascade Ecological wool but in shade 8016.



I also wrote a knitting pattern for two sizes S-M and L-XXL.
The knitting pattern for Temptation Poncho – Adult is available from one of my pattern stores:

  2. I believe the adult poncho pattern has an error on row 19. I'm coming up with 131 stitches versus the needed 164 stitches.

  3. I am trying to do the child poncho and this is my first time doing a project like this. I'm a little confused. In the beginning when you do the wrap stitch and then turn the work I don't understand if I the start on the next row and leave the short row or if if start the next row pattern and finish out the rest of the say second row then continue the pattern to the third row

    1. Thank you for getting in touch.
      Rows 1 to 8 are short rows, so you do not need to knit all stitches in these rows. Yes, you need to turn your work after wrapped stitch and continue working next row. Please follows row by row instructions as written in the pattern.
      Please let me know if you need my further assistance :)

  7. Hi Tanya. Wonder if you can help me I purchased the poncho pattern from you earlier on in the year but cannot remember if it was from Etsy or revelry. And now cannot find the download. Just my printed out copy but I don't seem to have the hat pattern on it. So you have to buy it separately? I have 4 to make for Christmas and was looking forward to starting. Hope you can help please
    Thanks

  8. Hi there, I am knitting the child's poncho size 8-9 yrs, and not getting the right gauge. I am using the recommended yarn and the size 9 needles, and I get 15 stitches to the inch. Is it ok to go down to size 8?

    Hi, thank you for the getting in touch. I would recommend you to adjust the knitting needle size. Please try the size 8 knitting needles.

    1. I have finished the front, and found there was a different pattern between the bobbles and the neck ribbing than shown in the photos. The photo for adult and 2-3yo sizes have a different cable pattern than I have. Did I do something wrong? Please double check and let me know before I get to the same spot on the back piece. I have a photo but there's no where to upload it?

  9. I am making the smallest size on the round.
    Could you please tell me where I would stop knitting on the round for the sleeve placement. I realize I veered off the pattern but I wanted to try a sweater on the round. I really don't like sewing up the pieces of a project. Thank you for an excellently written pattern.

    1. Dear Pat,
      Thank you for getting in touch and your feedback.
      I would recommend you to join parts together when the body piece measures 10 cm along the imaginary side seam and sleeves measure 21 cm.
      Please let me know if you need my further assistance.
      Happy knitting :)

    2. Are you sure 10 cm. Thats only 2 inches. I've already done 45 rows all in the round.

      Delete
  10. Please read the last section of the pattern on the page 12. I've just double checked my poncho. It is about 9 cm from the bottom. I've added picture at the end of the post with the measuring tape.
    You can join the sleeves now (after round 45). I think it will look very similar to my version.

    1. Dear Coral,
      Thank you for getting in touch.
      Could you please clarify your question. It is not clear what problem you have.
      Also please make sure that you follow the row-by-row instructions for short rows 1 to 10 accurately as written.
