Simple Pony Hoodie (pattern)

Rainbow Knits » Shop » Patterns » Simple Pony Hoodie (pattern)

I designed this pony-eared hoodie for my youngest pony-mad daughter: close-fitting, yet long enough in the sleeve and body that she can bend and stretch and cause mischief and mayhem without getting draughts. The garment is smooth and entirely seamless because it’s knitted in one piece (even the ears). The shoulders and body are gently shaped to suit a child’s body, and to make that gloriously enormous hood sit comfortably. The hood is plenty big enough to be a pony disguise, or flop around like a cape, however you prefer to wear it.

This is a downloadable pdf of a knitting pattern in sizes 2-4 years, 4-6 years and 6-8 years.

It's aimed at advanced knitters. You need to know how to:

  • Increase and decrease stitches;
  • Work with different colours;
  • Pick up and work stitches;
  • Use stitch markers;
  • Use Magic Loop technique with a circular needle;
  • Graft using Kitchener stitch or do 3-needle cast-off or cast-off conventionally and seam up afterwards.
