Little Miss Margo is the child/tween version of my Margo Poncho pattern . It is worked flat, in two pieces (front and back), and attached at the shoulders using the three needle bind-off technique. Front and back sides are buttoned together. Both the front and back feature an easy faux cable stitch pattern and the back piece is longer than the front, creating a more modern silhouette.

This pattern is simple enough for the beginner knitter looking to learn a few new techniques and the faux cable panels are easy to memorize. A fun project that knits up quickly!
