Crochet Poncho Free Pattern

 

Crochet Summer Poncho

 

I used Lion Brand Cupcake yarn for the pattern but any DK weight yarn will look great too. Try it in a single color and I am sure it will look gorgeous.

 

 

Crochet Poncho Closeup

 

The crochet poncho free pattern is a beginner level pattern constructed from two simple rectangles. You make two shawls and join them to make the poncho.

 

The stitch pattern is very refreshing and is made up of chain stitches. I have never chained so much for one project, lol! To me, it looks like flowers but to my daughter it looks like triangles. Either way, the stitch is beautiful and perfect for a summer project.

Using your white color yarn, make one more piece following the same pattern.

 

Joining the Pieces of your Crochet Poncho

 

 

On the long side of the rectangle made with Cupcake yarn, place a marker 16(18, 20) inches away from the edge. Sew the shorter side of the left piece to this marked part without stretching (Part B above). Now you have an ‘L’ shape. Next, join the top shorter side of the right piece to the long side of the left piece as shown by the red arrow. I used a whip stitch and white color yarn to join the pieces.
