Reviewing A Crochet Poncho Pattern

Easy Pattern To Crochet Your Own Poncho

Crochet Poncho a work in progress
As promised a few weeks back, I will review a crochet poncho pattern that I am currently working on for myself. You can see on the left the finished front panel of my colorful little addition to my wardrobe. 

Ponchos are trendy right now in the crochet world and this one is pretty easy to make. If you have ever done a granny square, you will master this pattern pretty quickly. There are only two rows to learn and then it is just a repetition of them until you have the desired length. 

I found this crochet poncho pattern while reading a post from Mikey at The Crochet Crowd and decided that I would give it a try. I love ponchos and since I seem to always be cold I thought it would be nice to have one that I can just wear around the house to keep my shoulders warm. I used some spare yarn that I had in my stash to create something that would go with many of my tops. I can wear it at home or I can wear it when I go out to do errands. 

The fun thing about this easy to crochet pattern is that it is so versatile. The original pattern shows it using just one color of yarn. I decided to get creative and use 7 colors. Mikey in his video tutorial used a variegated yarn. The same pattern looks totally different when you work with your own creativity.  


If you have been thinking that you would like to add a poncho to your wardrobe and want something unique that can't be found in stores, I recommend trying this easy to crochet poncho pattern as an option. It really does not take very long to stitch up! One would even be a nice gift for someone you love or they are nice to hook-up and donate to a local shelter.

  1. Thank you for this wonderful idea. I love ponchos too for all the reasons you have given. The other reason is that I have a stash of yarn that will work too! What a great way to use up all those extras that you have kicking around when other projects are complete!

  3. What a lovely poncho Bev! I love that you used spare yarn that you already had on hand. What a great way to reduce the stockpile of yarn by making a pretty multi-colored poncho. And what a great crochet project pattern to share. Since it is a simple pattern, this would be a great crochet group project and it would be fun to see the many different colors of ponchos made.

  4. Love the colors in this very cute poncho! I used to have a shawl pattern that was very similar, just a diagonal half of a huge granny square, and I made several of those for gifts. I'm a little rusty with the crochet hook, but I think crochet is a lot like riding a bike and it'll come back to me. So glad ponchos are back in style!
