Staying Warm and Stylish Pattern

Happy Sunday!

I am so glad to present another CBC Designs pattern.

This design was inspired by another poncho pattern that I had favorited on Ravelry but never took a moment to add to my library and my desire to be warm. Of course, when I was finally ready to make my own poncho after scoring some awesome super bulky yarn on clearance, the pattern was no longer available! I was bummed for a little bit, but then I realized I could make my own, so the Hooded Poncho was born.

During the winter, I tend to feel cold and have cold hands. I dislike being cold so much, I left Chicago after four winters. I just could not stand the below zero temperatures and the wind off of Lake Michigan any longer. Now that I live in the southeastern United States, the winter is milder, but it has it’s really cold days and random ice storms with a dusting of snow.

The Hooded Poncho is perfect for those chilly days to be paired with a long sleeve top and some gloves to keep you stylish with the comfort of being wrapped in a squishy blanket. This is also great for the person who does not like a traditional winter coat, or the warm natured person that wears a coat out of practical reasons during the coldest days. And since Punxsutawney Phil said we would have six more weeks of winter and it was snowing in the western part of North Carolina this week, the timing is perfect.

I used an easy stitch pattern that creates texture and visual appeal of an intermediate level, but it’s easy enough for an advanced beginner.

  1. I LOVE it!!! I live in Central Wisconsin. We moved here from the Chicago area when my husband retired just two years ago. So, we went from cold to colder! This is exactly the type of item I need for daily life around the house. Thanks so much for such a beautiful creation and for sharing you creativity and beauty!
