Christmas Countdown – Free Knitted Poncho

Last Updated on February 3, 2020 by Gwen Bautista

It’s Day 4 of our second annual Christmas Countdown. So far, we’ve hosted free patterns from Life and Yarn as well as from With Alex, so make sure to stop by their guest posts to download.  We also featured our Crossed Cable Fingerless Gloves, which was only available as an exclusive kit from Mary Maxim and is now available as a download for a limited time.  All downloads are available until January 31st. Make sure to add them to your collection today.

Button Cable Knit Poncho

Today we are featuring the Buttoned Cabled Poncho.  The knitted poncho has been one of Mary Maxim’s best-selling Fashion Accessories.  You can still purchase the kit that includes a fancy zippered project bag, all the yarn needed to complete your poncho and your choice of Mary Maxim Aran Irish Tweed or Mary MaximAran Irish Twist yarn.  However, for a limited time, you can DOWNLOAD IS EXPIRED.


The Button Cabled Poncho comes in two sizes.  The extra small to medium size finishes at 44 inches [112 cm] wide by 26 inches [66 cm] long.  The large to 2XL size finishes at 50 inches [127 cm] wide by 29 inches [73.5 cm] long.  This is a great item to customize.  Without much shaping, simply add a few repeats to extend the size and customize it for who it’s intended.


This is a perfect project for someone who wants to improve their cable knitting skills.  The center cable is intricate enough to make this piece pop yet is simple enough to make this poncho a perfect easy cabled garment.  The Button Cabled Poncho is worked as a front panel and back panel then sewn together.  Then you will add a collar and the right and left sideband.  Next, add buttons to finish the look.
