I’ve always loved ponchos for children. They look so adorable wearing their little ponchos and they provide the added bonus of keeping them warm. They are fun to wear too!
Julie R requested a pattern search for Hooded Poncho Patterns for girls a while back (I apologize this took so long to post Julie!) and here are the free patterns I was able to find online.
I was actually very surprised by how few free crochet hooded poncho patterns there were available for children. While there were quite a few patterns available for babies and adults there were only a limited number for children.
Because of this, I expanded my search a bit and tried searching for Free Hooded Cape Patterns that might also work. I’ve included a couple of those in the results below.
Just in case you don’t mind paying for a pattern, I have included some for-sale poncho options too. The for sale patterns will have a $ beside the title.
