Tristin from Two Girls Being Crafty is here to share this Too-Cute Tute for a Granny Square Poncho. Hmnn. I think we might need her to do one for the hat too, right? Leave Tristin a comment here and you could win a yard of my pom-pom trim which I have been creepily petting for you until it ships off to it’;s new home. I love trim. Sorry, I’;m sleep deprived. Take it away Tristin…; please.

I came up with the idea to crochet aponcho for mytoddlerto wear in cold weather because she strongly dislikes wearinglong-sleeves (she’;s a Florida girl, through and through–;if it were up to her, clothing and shoes would always be optional). Anyhowcustom teacher gifts, after looking all over the web for free toddler poncho patterns (’;cause I’;m cheap like that) with very depressing results, I decided I’;d just have to come up with my own design.

I was inspired by running across this retro concept for an adult granny square poncho.

I used 4 colors of yarn for Junebug’;s poncho–;all from the Caron Simply Soft collection. Obviously, you can use whatever you like!

In total, you’;ll need 16squares to make a toddler-sized poncho. My squares were about 4″; each when finished. I estimate that this would fit a toddler from 12 months to a 2T size–;andof coursethe pattern is totally adjustable based on the size you desire. If it’;s for an older child, just add an extra row or two whencreating your granny squares. Junebug is a teeny toddler–;she’;s 19 months old and still wearing 12 month sizedclothing. I’;mthinking this poncho will fit her next winter, too.

I used a version of theslipstitch method (using Caron Simply Soft in Camel) to join the squares in this layout:

Once they’;re joined in the “;seven”; shape, use this schematic to join the poncho into it’;s final shape:

Once the poncho hadthe structure in place, I crocheted one row of single crochet around the neck opening to make it stronger and more cohesive.I finished the bottom of the poncho by single crocheting two rows around (again, to make it stronger and more cohesive) and then used a basic shell stitch for some girly flair. A fringe would be a lot of fun if your kidis past the stage of puttingeverything in their mouths.The shell edging pattern I used goes a little something like this:

Then, of course, I tucked in all the loose strands. That’;s never the fun part of the project, but alas, it’;s necessary for true “;completion”;.

In hindsight I wish I had used different colors. You know, something brighter and bolder, and a bit more fun. I think the poncho came out very sweet and baby-like, and very un-toddlerish (don’;t you like my technical terms?). Well, live and learn!

Simple, yet smart, teal and brown colour combinations work extremely well in guest rooms. With a colour and style to suit either gender you'll have no worries letting guests stay in your home in comfort and style. Although it's your home and you can choose whichever colour scheme you like for your guest room, it has to be said that most of us don't want to offend any guests nor make it look like we favour one gender over another! With dark chocolate tones and jewelled teal shades your guest room will look chic without you having too worry.

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Let the age-old story put your young ones to sleep, surrounded by clouds and dreams, on this special night. Christmas morning will be more exciting when your child has the proper atmosphere to float into a deep sleep and awaken refreshed.

I teach at a great school that embraces technology and engineering education. My students in 6th grade make stuffed toys with circuits, and I got tired of losing needles and mixups with the "regular" scissors so I created a little caddy to hold the fabric scissors, pin cushion, seam ripper and needle threader. It's nice because students have everything they need in one package. I also use it as an example of iterative design. The first version (on the left) falls over when scissors are put in vertically. The second one had too much support material that was really hard to remove. The third worked ok, and there were a few more variations on that until the final (version 8) used less material and held the scissors more securely.
