Britt Poncho - childrens sizes
Britt Poncho is a quick-knit poncho with a small rib detail around the neck and a button decoration. It is knit entirely in the round, so no seaming is necessary.
This is not a totally revised pattern using the same gauge as the original version. Downsizing the pattern and yet maintaining proportions of the garment won’t work. I’ve decided to give pithy instructions for downsizing this by changing needles and yarn instead!
The toddler size is very practical for throwing on when sitting in the buggy. Choose your size, needles and yarn and then work as per pattern.
