Knit Poncho for a Baby Doll

 
 

 





Poncho for a Baby Doll

Using DK yarn and 4mm needles ~

Cast on 65sts

Knit 2 rows

Row 3:                   S1, * yrn, k2tog, repeat from * to end

Row 4 and every alternate (wrong side) row:       S1, purl to last st, k1

Row 5:                   Kfb,  k30, kfb, kfb, k30, kfb, k1

Row 7:                   Kfb,  k32, kfb, kfb, k32, kfb, k1

Row 9:                   Kfb,  k34, kfb, kfb, k34, kfb, k1


Continue working and increasing in this manner until work measures 4½” from the cast on edge  (use stitch markers if this helps you)

 

It is easy to adjust the length here (work more rows if required)

Knit 9 rows, continuing to increase as before on every right side row

Cast off knitwise loosely (if you find this difficult – use a larger needle)

Sew up the back seam

Darn away ends

 

Make a crochet chain drawstring (or use a ribbon if you prefer)

Thread it through the eyelet holes at the neckline, and tie in a bow

Poncho for her Baby Doll too!


If you have decided to crochet my toddler poncho - why not made a little version - for her baby doll too ? !

What could be cuter? This fits my 'Annabelle' doll perfectly.




These instructions use UK terminology ~

CH = chain          TR = treble crochet         SS = slip stitch


 
Baby Doll Poncho
 
I used 36g of DK (8ply) yarn and 4mm hook
 
CH 56 and join with  a SS  (make sure the chain is not twisted)
Round 1:                TR (treble crochet) in every chain stitch
Round 2:  CH 3 and work a TR into the next 2 stitches,  * CH 1 skip a stitch, and work a TR into the next 3 stitches,   Repeat from * 12 times more, CH1,  SS to join.   (You should have 14 clusters of TR's and 14 spaces)
Round 3:  SS 2 stitches to the first space, CH 3 and work 2TR into the same space, * jump to the next space and work 3TR,  repeat from * another 4 times (you will have 6 clusters in total),  work 3TR, 3CH,  3TR in next space,  ** jump to the next space and work 3TR,  repeat from ** another 5  times, work 3TR, 3CH, 3TR into the next space,  CH1, and SS to join (you will now have 6 clusters, a point, 6 clusters and a point)
Round 4:  SS 2 stitches to the first space, CH 3 and work 2TR into the same space, * jump to the next space and work 3TR,  repeat from * another 4 times (you will have 6 clusters in total),  work 3TR, 3CH,  3TR in next chain space,  ** jump to the next space and work 3TR,  repeat from ** another 6  times, work 3TR, 3CH, 3TR into the next space,  jump to the next space and work 3TR, CH1, and SS to join
Continue  -  SS 2 stitches to the first space, CH 3 and work 2TR into the same space, work 3TR into every space, and  work 3TR, 3CH, 3TR into each point  -  and end each round with CH1, and SS to join - for 9 more rounds  (or until the length you require)
Darn away ends
Add a crochet chain drawstring cord to the base of the first round, and tie in a bow
You could add a crochet shell edging  - or fringes – if you like
