Mommy's Little Cupcake Poncho

a raglan knit with a twist


$6.00

 

Mommy’s little girl is a sweetie, no doubt about, but she’s also active. As the winter months thaw into spring, she needs something quick and stylish to throw on when she goes outside. Forget jackets, she needs a poncho. This pattern is knit from the top down. The bell shape is created by using a playful twist on the raglan yoke. The extra-wide collar makes the poncho easy to pull on and off and the picot edging is so sweet it looks like frosting on a cupcake.
