Cloud Easy Poncho and Cowl knitting pattern -adult
Light as a cloud, warm as a blanket!
A very warm, chunky, poncho to wrap up in, for that walk by the sea! Wear it one of two ways – with points at the front and back, or on the sides. Plus a matching cowl, for extra warmth.
Soft, fluffy, super-chunky/super-bulky yarn, and garter stitch, (i.e. knit every row), combine to give a modern, textured look.
The pattern is very easy, so great for a beginner, as all you need to know is how to cast/bind on and off, the knit stitch, and sewing up. And it’s a great meditative knit for the more experienced. Written line by line in English, with British/US terms. Yarn recommendations are given, but most super-chunky/super-bulky yarns, with a recommended needle size of approx. 9mm, should work well with this pattern, although amounts may vary and please check your tension/gauge - I have used a larger size than the recommended needle size for this yarn, so that it hangs better.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
