BARILOCHE Easy Vest Pullover Knitting Pattern

This Vest / Pullover / Poncho is great for autumn. It keeps you warm without difficulting your movements, which makes it perfect for children! As a bonus: no more loosing scarves on the playground 😉

My “BARILOCHE” Easy Vest / Pullover / Poncho is worked flat in 3 steps:

  • knit front and back pieces
  • join one shoulder to pick up sts and knit the turtleneck,
  • sew turtleneck and remaining shoulder in one go.

It comes in sizes from 2 years to adults 😃 I separated the pattern into 2 groups: 2 years to teens (written below), and adult women sizes (a separate blog post HERE).

Skill level: suitable for beginner knitters who know how to make yarn overs and pass them over other sts (advanced beginners / easy level). See abbreviations.

12.5 sts x 15 rows in stocking stitch with US 11 (8 mm) needles = 4” x 4” (10 cm x 10 cm)

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • RS: right side / WS: wrong side

INSTRUCTIONS

A) FRONT

1. CO 50 (52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 70) sts with US 13 (9 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

2. With US 11 (8 mm) knit 1 row.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a nicer border and will allow you to make a quick and neat seam when you need to.

3. Work 6 (6, 6, 8, 8, 10, 10) rows as follows (see stitch glossary at the end of this pattern): 2 garter sts, bamboo stitch until 2 sts remain on needle, 2 garter sts.

4. Continue as follows from RS: 2 garter sts, 4 bamboo sts, stocking st until 6 sts remain, 4 bamboo sts, 2 garter sts.

5. When your piece has a total length of 14.25’’ (15.25’’, 16.25’’, 17’’, 18’’, 19.75’’, 20.5’’) [36 cm (39 cm, 41 cm, 43 cm, 46 cm, 50 cm, 52 cm)], follow the instructions below according to the size you are working.

PLEASE NOTE that you won’t be making any buttonhole since the bamboo stitch provides a texture open enough to pass buttons through it 😊.

Feel free to increase the length if you desire a longer poncho.

2 years, 3 / 4 years, 5 / 6 years and 7 / 8 years sizes

– When you reach your desired length, start shaping the neck as follows:

Next row (RS): work the first 16 (17, 18, 20) sts as before, slip the next 18 (18, 20, 20) sts on a stitch holder, join new yarn and work the remaining 16 (17, 18, 20) sts as before.

Next row (WS): bind off 1 st at the beginning of the second piece, from mid front. All other sts are worked normally.

Next row (RS): bind off 1 st at the beginning of the second piece, from mid front. All other sts are worked normally.

– Bind off loosely with US 13 (9 mm) needle. Leave long tails of yarn to sew. Your front piece will look like this:

1wip

9 / 10 years, 11 / 12 years and 13 / 14 years sizes

– When you reach your desired length, start shaping the neck as follows:

Next row (RS): work the first 22 (24, 24) sts as before, slip the next 20 (20, 22) sts on a stitch holder, join new yarn and work the remaining 22 (24, 24) sts as before.

Next row (WS): bind off 1 st at the beginning of the second piece, from mid front. All other sts are worked normally.

Next row (RS): bind off 1 st at the beginning of the second piece, from mid front. All other sts are worked normally.

– Repeat the last 2 rows.

– Bind off loosely with US 13 (9 mm) needle. Leave long tails of yarn to sew. Your front piece will look like this:

B) BACK

– Follow the instructions from the FRONT until your desired length, BEFORE starting shaping the neck.

– Work normally 3 (3, 3, 3, 5, 5, 5) more rows (that is, follow the pattern of 2 garter sts, 4 bamboo sts, etc.)

Next row (WS): bind off the first 15 (16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 22) sts, p the next 20 (20, 22, 22, 24, 24, 26) sts, and bind off the remaining 15 (16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 22) sts.

– Cut yarn and slip the remaining sts (back neck sts) on a stitch holder (or scrap yarn, as you prefer😊)


C) NECK AND FINISHING

– Join the front and back pieces by sewing the right shoulder. You should end up with something like this:

Neck

– With US 11 (8 mm) needles pick up from the RS 42 (42, 44, 44, 46, 46, 48) sts around the neckline.

– Work in bamboo stitch with 1 garter stitch at each side until the neck measures 4’’ (4.75’’, 5’’, 5.5’’, 6’’, 6.25’’, 7’’) [10 cm (12 cm, 13 cm, 14 cm, 15 cm, 16 cm, 18 cm)].

PLEASE NOTE that the RS of the neck corresponds to the WS of the main part of the poncho. This is so because the neck is folded in the finished garment, revealing the RS of the bamboo stitch.

– Bind off loosely with US 13 (9 mm) needles.

– Sew the second shoulder and neck and weave in yarn ends.

– Sew 2 or 3 buttons at each side, in the WS of the back.

    • So true… After making so many little things as I design them I always feel like something for me (even a hat!) take me forever. It’s been years since I last knitted myself a sweater 🤭
