Have you dug out your boots and ponchos yet? If not, it’s time! As promised, here is the adult version of the crocheted poncho I made for my niece, Sydney.
This pattern is pretty much identical to the toddler size, only bigger. :) I found the FREE pattern here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/crochet-pattern-boho-poncho.html
The picture to the right is what the start of each row looks like: A chain of 4 and then 3 double crochets. When you get to the end of the row, you'll crochet 2 more double crochets in that same stitch and slip stitch it to the top of the initial chain 3.
The only thing I did differently was not include the scalloped edging. I wanted it to look exactly like the toddler version so instead of doing the fancy scalloped edging, I completed the poncho by chaining 1 and single crocheting around the entire thing to give it a nice finished look.
Since Steph is pretty skinny and tall, I stuck to the smaller size and only started with the chain of 44. I used the same yarn as the smaller poncho: Lion Brand Homespun in the color Clouds. It is so super soft and delightfully toasty warm. In fact, after finishing this poncho, I decided I needed one of my own. I want to use a different kind of yarn so I can play around with a different texture and color scheme, so I’ll be going shopping soon to find something fun and unique!
In case you missed my post on the child sized poncho, here it is: https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=4475178157260115808#editor/target=post;postID=1808159726405592478;onPublishedMenu=editor;onClosedMenu=editor;postNum=2;src=postname
This poncho pattern works up so fast! I had it finished in a little over a day. And, once you get the pattern down, you really don’t have to think about it or count. I repeatedly had Steph try it on to make sure it was the correct size and to determine how long to make it.
Aren’t matching mother-daughter ponchos the best?! Too cute for words!
Enjoy the free pattern and get busy working on your own poncho!
