Spring Breeze Crochet Poncho

May 22, 2017

This Spring Breeze Poncho is a little shorter than your typical poncho, with an open and airy pattern. Since it’s spring, I didn’t want anything too heavy.

Being in the desert, I won’t be able to wear it too many more times before it’s too hot. But we’re heading to northern Az this summer, so I’m excited to wear my new poncho in the cooler weather! Today we played in the park for a bit and it was comfortable and easy to play in with the littles.

 

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

CONSTRUCTION

Fold each panel in half and lay side by side with the gray stripes on opposite ends and the fold at the top. Sew the panels together in the center with single crochet, leaving a space at the top for the neckline. Do this for the front and back. Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

Now sew the sides together using single crochet. Do this for both sides, leaving spaces for the arm holes

Turn poncho right-side out, with the single crochet seams on the inside.

Insert your hook into a bottom corner and single crochet around the bottom evenly.

Ch 4 (counts as dc + 1 ch), *skip one stitch, dc, ch 1* repeat from * to * around, join, fasten off and weave in the ends.

NOTE: If the last row doesn’t work out perfectly, that’s fine. I had an extra stitch in mine

Now add fringe to every other ch 1 space (or every space… or however you’d like 🙂 )

I added 6 pieces of 12 inch yarn (3 in gray and 3 in seafoam) to every other chain 1 space.

Then trim the fringe to your liking.
