Pearly Poncho 18" Doll Knitting Pattern

3 Reviews   |  

This beautiful tabard-style Poncho and cozy Head Wrap are perfect for your 18-inch doll as she heads into Fall. Knitted in Stockinette stitch with Seed stitch Hem and Side Bands, this easy Poncho has Step-by-Step Instructions and photographs for making the beautiful beaded cable pattern down the Center Front. The Poncho has a generous single rib Polo Neck Collar and closes at the back with 7 buttons, while the sides are stitched together with decorative non-functioning buttons. The gorgeous, shaped Head Wrap is knitted in Seed Stitch with Stockinette Beaded Cable Twists and closes with a single button at the nape of the neck. These are super knits for beginners which explain how to add cables and knit with beads.

This easy pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®
