Small Hooded Poncho FREE Pattern:
In my stash of fabric, I remember an interesting piece of fabric I purchased in Australia perhaps 5 years ago. I think today is the perfect day to make use of it. It is a Polar anti-pill fleece, perfect for a short hooded poncho. It will be great for late Summer, Spring, and Autumn.
I made this small hooded poncho oval-shaped, as a perfect circle would make a wider poncho. I dislike very wide ponchos due to the fact that I am vertically challenged, at 5'1″ tall a very wide poncho makes me feel like a folded taco.
There is a hood to keep your head warm should there be any wind or rain. And Kangaroo pockets to keep the hands warm. When I made mine I actually didn't make my small hooded poncho with the pockets, but that was because I didn't have enough of the same fabric. But I still show you have to put the pockets together in the last step, I recommend doing them as they'll look good and will be very handy.
