Ponchos are always in trend and they are so wonderfully 70s-like! Casual, chic, uncomplicated and extravagant.
Provided you know how to combine them. Because under no circumstances should the outfit look “stabbed”. The more voluminous the poncho, the more you have to make sure that the legwear looks rather slim. So please do not wear fluffy skirts with them, not even long maxi skirts that fall far. It is better to choose narrow, tight skirts or slim pants such as skinny jeans or leggings. High boots look nice with it.
Of course, a sweater with slim sleeves is more likely to be used as a top, not thick wool sweaters underneath. Long sleeves and turtlenecks are good choices.
Ponchos keep you nice and warm in the transition period and replace a jacket. They are cozy and feel good. They don't cramp like a jacket and so you actually feel wonderfully free with a poncho - until the next downpour comes. You should be prepared for that and have an umbrella with you or a rain jacket to wear over it, because of course it is no fun to get soaked with the wool poncho.
One disadvantage of the poncho is that due to its voluminous cut you can no longer wear a jacket over it. So it's really primarily a nice feel-good piece for cooler but dry days. If you are unsure what the weather will be like, you should opt for a weatherproof jacket. But it is ideal for shopping, strolling and city trips.
Pretty knitted poncho with cable pattern and color gradient:
This elegant and cozy, warm poncho is cut like bat wings. The triangular shape makes it look slimmer than other models. It is also very advantageous due to its medium-short length. The thick turtleneck, whose rib pattern recurs at the hem, is very pretty. The not-so-easy cable pattern is an eye-catcher, which will be a lot of fun for knitting fans. Many color gradient yarns from Chiemseegarn!are suitable for this great piece
Short shoulder warmer with an effective pattern
You get really cozy and warm at this sight! The wonderfully thick shoulder warmer is simply knitted with 4 threads so that the pattern looks so wonderfully three-dimensional!
And: the pearly pattern is actually suitable for beginners! But it's even nicer that the good piece is just a rectangle. This means: do not take off or pick up any stitches, just knit straight up. Really ideal for all less experienced knitting fans.
What do you do with a shoulder warmer? Such a piece is wonderfully comfortable to wear, because you don't have to sort it again and again like the scarf. Once put on, it always fits. You can't lose it either. The shoulder warmer is perfect for small snowball fights in front of the house. And whenever you shiver around upstairs, despite your jacket, you can put it on. Of course, it only fits well over tops that don't have voluminous collars.
Poncho with sleeves: knit Swancho
Maybe you didn't know: a poncho with sleeves is called a swancho. If it is particularly beautiful, you can feel like a beautiful swan with wings. This one has a great plastic pattern.
However, the completion is not that easy: You have to knit the triangles together over and over again. Three pieces each, the fourth is sewn onto the first triangle. This is the only way to create the beautiful diamond pattern.By the way, the sleeves appear almost by themselves! It is only through the 12 cm long ribbed cuffs that you can see that these are sleeves
XXL poncho as a clothing replacement
This knitted poncho looks like an extravagant knitted dress. It consists of two very large pieces of knitting that are knitted almost like two blankets. The lighter part with braids only has a cutout for the neckline. It looks so fancy and sophisticated because two different colors and patterns are combined. In this way, the slim silhouette is retained, despite the thick cable pattern on one side.
The XXL poncho falls as long and wide as a dress. It is therefore best to wear very narrow trousers underneath.
You can knit all of these models with the gradient yarns from Chiemseegarn. But always do a mesh sample so that you can adopt the cuts and instructions. Often you have to use the gradient yarn multi-ply. Or maybe you will get creative yourself and design your own ponchos, because the basic cuts are not complicated.
