Product Details
Additional Information


Skill Level: Confident Beginner. Video clips are included for several steps.

Recommended Fabric Types:

Since there are separate pieces for stretch fabrics and non-stretch fabrics, this poncho can be made in nearly any fabric you desire! Some suggested fabrics are: softshell, fleece, sweater knits, french terry, flannel, cotton woven, minky/chenille, faux fur, PUL, boiled wool, and other heavy outerwear fabrics.

Design Features & Options:

  • Two different hood styles (basic or banded) with a scuba neckline to help keep out the cold air
  • Hood and neck hole sizes come in two variations – one for fabrics with 0-20% stretch and one for fabrics over 20% stretch
  • Optional elastic casing for the hood, recommended for fabrics with poor stretch recovery, or if you want to size up for a poncho that will last longer
  • Banded hood has the option to be made as single or double layer
  • Optional brim for the basic hood
  • Optional bottom-opening zipper for the cape – this can be placed on the front to help with doing up car seat buckles underneath, OR on the back to allow the back to drape to the sides of the car seat instead of needing to be flipped up over the back of the car seat
  • Optional decorative bunny ears for the hoods
  • Single or double layer cape – double layer ponchos can be made reversible! (exception: the reversible method cannot be used with an elastic casing hood AND a zippered cape – all other combinations can be reversible)

  • Imperial and metric measurements throughout the tutorial
  • Size chart and finished measurements chart (VIEW SIZE CHART)
  • Fabric requirements chart (VIEW FABRIC REQUIREMENTS CHART)

  • All important info provided on pattern pieces for easy reference (seam allowance, grain line, size labels, cutting instructions, pattern name, top and bottom for directional prints, etc.)
  • Optional band rectangular pieces to print (cut dimensions also provided in tutorial)
