WZ806 60s Knitted Poncho and Hat
Vintage Knit Pattern Patterns PDF 00806


KNITTING: A beautifully textured poncho and matching beret or beanie hat, or beret, with a pompom from the late sixties for. Both right back in fashion!

The poncho has a thick knitted rib roll collar and a small (optional) fringe. The honeycomb texture is created by using 2 contrasting thin yarns (UK 4ply) in an easy slip stitch patterning. You could use one slightly thicker yarn for a plain colour effect.

The hat is called a beret but is closer to a “beanie” in shape.  It can easily be made more “beret shaped” by making more increases and then decreases, before finishing the top.
