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. Using bulky-weight yarn, it features an easy faux cable stitch pattern on the front and back 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.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
