Little Miss Margo

Little Miss Margo is the child/tween version of my Margo Poncho pattern. It provides instructions for a wide-range of sizes, from 4 years old to 15 years old. It uses aran/bulky-weight yarn (shown in Quince & Co's "Osprey") and is worked flat, in two pieces (front and back), and attached at the shoulders using the three needle bind-off technique (so it’s completely seamless!). Front and back sides are buttoned together. Both the front and back feature an easy faux cable stitch pattern that is fun and interesting to knit (they look similar to cables but are actually created with just slipped stitches and yarn overs). The back piece is longer than the front, creating a more modern silhouette.

Pattern Cost: $6.00
