  • Illustrated Knitting Pattern
  • US Imperial Measurement/Metric Measurement
  • Sizes 4-6yrs, 7-10yrs, teen/adult, large adult
  • Intermediary


A warm, chunky, owl poncho to wrap up in for that walk by the sea.  Moss stitch (USA seed stitch) edges, garter stitch body and owls all come together for a cosy and fashionable knit. 

The pattern is intermediate, as you will need to know how to cast/bind on and off, knit and purl stitches and very simple cabling.   Chunky/bulky yarn makes for a fashionable look and fast knit.    There are photos to help with sewing it up and a schematic of the poncho, so you can visualise how it's knitted.   The pattern is 7 pages long.                

There are 4 sizes -  4-6yrs, 7-10yrs, teen/adult and large adult.  Yarn recommendations are given, but most chunky/bulky yarns should be fine, as slight variations of size on a poncho aren't so important.

A great spring or autumn cover-up, or even just right for a cooler summer's eve.  Just right for that barbecue, festival or walk by the sea!
