Ever since I got pregnant, I been knitting like a maniac. It’s so rewarding knitting these small sizes – a new knitting project usually takes me months to finish, but knit for babies is usually finished within a few weeks – or days. And the patterns are so adorable!
You can get the pattern for free here: Little Peach by DROPS Design. I made a few alterations: I added a tassel at the top, changed the type of yarn to one that doesn’t fluff so much, and a friend advised me to remove the strings at the neck of the poncho. Other than that, it’s a quick and easy pattern. Perfect for an autumn baby!

Thanks Carla! I couldn’t resist the pattern – so cute! And my cats love yarn, so it’s difficult to keep them away from my projects 😀
OMG – the baby will look so cute, and it is rewarding – both the knitting and knowing that you made this your own way. Kitty looks jealous, best make a kitty-poncho as well 😉
Haha – I can’t imagine what would happen if tried squeezing my cat into a poncho 😀
It’s so sweet….I’m going to look at the pattern…perhaps I’ll knit it for my new Granddaughter….you’ve inspired me….
Let me know how it goes if you decide to knit it, Susan! It’s rather quick, only took me about a week 🙂
Hey I’m attempting to make this for my little girl who’s 14 months but can’t work out what wool I need to use to get the sizing right, what type of wool did you use? Iv worked out 8mm circular needles and I need 350g of wool but it just says Eskimo wool not DK or 4ply? 🙂 yours looks super cute, and love the tassle added to the top 🙂
I think I used this type of wool: http://www.garnstudio.com/yarn.php?id=22&cid=3
But it might be an idea to just choose the type of yarn you prefer for your girl, do a gauge, and based on that, choose the size. The pattern is from size 1 month – years, so you should be able to find the right size. That’s what I usually do – I want to use my favorite yarn, not what the pattern tells me to 😉
