I’m so pleased to share a new pattern, the Multicluster Poncho! Remember when the Autumn Leaves Infant/Toddler Poncho was released earlier this month and I said I couldn’t get enough of them? It’s true, I love how easy they are to make. Once you learn the overall technique used to making this type of poncho, it will become a go to pattern for the little ones in your life.
The multicluster stitch is the same one that was used to make the Chunky Cluster Baby Cardigan. I love the texture this stitch creates, it’s perfectly bulky for a sweater without being too heavy.
The Swish DK yarn, by WeCrochet, was a charm to work with. I love the stitch definition it creates, especially when using the mixed cluster stitch. It’s a wonderful superwash merino wool yarn that will keep your little ones warm without being itchy and without overheating them. And one KEY quality – the Swish DK is machine washable and can be dried in the dryer at a low setting. This yarn feature is key when making babywear so there’s no need to worry if the poncho gets stained.
I’ll have to make a cardigan using this yarn at some point, since it’s weight 3, it’s light enough to not get too bulky, yet maintains warmth and is super soft, the perfect combination when making babywear.

The yarn comes in 70 colors so no matter what your favorite color is, you’re bound to find one to make the perfect poncho gift. I chose holiday colors (garnet heather, forest heather, and white) since this pattern is one of several featured in the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely Susanna of Fosbas Designs. Shout out to the WeCrochet team for sponsoring the yarn for this event! #FallBlogHopWeC
