When considering what kind of children’s pattern I could investigate today, I first thought of ponchos. I think ponchos, especially on children, are just adorable. They’re cozy and stylish, and girls seem to love them. But that tripped me up a bit – “girls.” I have never seen a boy wearing a poncho, and I’m not sure a boy would want to wear one. So I thought, “what could be the equivalent of a poncho for a boy?” I came up with the tie. Yes, girls sometimes do wear ties, but they remain mostly the province of boys. And you can really create a stylish knitted tie that is bound to be much more interesting than store-bought ties! So today’s collection includes knitted ponchos for young girls, and knitted ties for young boys. They make great gifts as well as sweet dress-up projects for charity!

Peruvian Spirit Poncho: Here is a very simple poncho pattern with an adorable, Peruvian-inspired geometric patterned stripe right across the center. Comes in both adult and children’s sizes. Warm Hugs Poncho: This gorgeous pattern knits up quickly and features beautiful textured stripes. National Bow Tie: This cute-as-can-be bow tie pattern uses red, white, and blue for a touch of the patriotic, but of course you can use any colors to eniven this sweet tie. Vertical Stripe Tie: Much like the bow tie above, this necktie can be customized to use all kinds of colors for the stripes in question.

Fun Fur Trimmed Ponchos: Nothing dresses up a poncho quite like fun fur! And poncho patterns don’t come much simpler than this Lion Brand pattern. Playful Poncho: Another Lion Brand pattern, this one uses two yarns of different colors held together to create a beautiful blended appearance. Long fringe completes the fun. Sweetheart Poncho: If you want to try something completely different – like a thin, lacy poncho — this is the pattern for you!
