Knitted Poncho Inspirations For A Warm and Cozy Winter

Projects That’ll Make You Love the Knitted Poncho

It’s such a struggle dressing my kids during winter. They don’t like layers, they lose their hats and mittens, the winter storage situation is out of whack. But that was only until I discovered the wonders of the homemade knitted poncho.

The classic design makes it perfect for everyone, from babies to teenagers. My kids enjoy choosing colors for their handmade knitted poncho. And they love wearing them because they’re so warm and comforting—like a big hug from mom!

I can’t wait to knit this year’s batch of ponchos—I’m using this list as my mood board, and I hope you will too!

1. Blue Striped Poncho

What a timeless yet funky pattern! Keeping the colors within one color family really gives a striped knitted poncho an edge. Blue is a great idea to start with because it will always go with a pair of jeans.

2. Buttoned Poncho
