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

A pony-eared hoodie that’s close-fitting, 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;
  • Either graft using Kitchener stitch or do 3-needle cast-off or cast-off conventionally and seam up afterwards.
