12 of the best poncho patterns


Colder days are here to stay, so if you’re looking for a new knitting project, why not consider a poncho?

Hailing from South America, this timeless garment is made from a square or rectangular piece of fabric and features unstitched sides and a hole in the center for a person’s head. Inherently versatile, this easy-to-wear garment is ideal for layering when the temperature drops and, with its loose fit, it is also extremely flattering.

Designers who have included ponchos in their fall / winter 2021 collections include Burberry, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chloé, and Missoni, so you’ll be in great company.

Wear it at home or while walking the dog for a comfortable extra layer or, for a more directional look, tighten the waist with a belt or accessorize it with a trendy hat or knee-high boots.

Emily Platt, knitcraft brand manager at Hobbycraft, said Prima: “Knit ponchos are the perfect gift for friends and family this Christmas, as they provide a snug, comfy fit for the winter months. There are many models to choose from depending on your style.

“If you’re short on time, an oversized poncho in heavy yarn will knit quickly, or if you prefer something more patterned, there are many Fair Isle patterns to choose from. If you’re new to knitting, ponchos can be a good move if you have mastered your first scarf but are not quite ready to knit your first garment.

Here is our selection of the best models of ponchos to stay warm and stylish this winter.
