Reaching up to Half of your upper body, this Poncho is Incredibly easy to crochet and wear. Personalised with Fringes!
So let's Get started!

Materials:

  • 5.00 mm hook
  • medium weight yarn[I used Purple-It's My fav! ;)]
  • Scissors

Note: *Pattern written in American English

*This Pattern is for a small-medium size

Stitches Used:

Single Crochet(sc)

Chain (ch)

Slip Stitch(sl St)

V-Stitch- work 1 double crochet stitch, chain 1 stitch, and work another double crochet stitch, all for a single stitch.

Skip (sk)

Single crochet Decrease(Sc dec):[Insert your hook into the next stitch.Yarn over (yo) and draw the yarn through the stitch.Insert your hook into the next stitch.Yarn over (yo) and draw the yarn through the stitch.Yarn over and draw the yarn through all 3 loops on your hook.]

Pattern:

  • Chain 102
  • Round 1: Sc all around. Slip Stitch to form a ring making sure not to twist
  • Round 2: Ch 3(not counted as a stitch), Make a V-stitch
  • Sk 2 Stitches and make a V-stitch in the 3rd Stitch. Continue all around(34 V-stitches)
  • Sl st to the top of chain 3
  • Round 3-20 : Ch 3 (not counted as a stitch), make a V-stitch in the same stitch.Sk 2 sts and make a V-stitch in the 3rd st and all around.
  • Fasten off.
  • Going back to the Sc round, attach a new strand.
  • Ch 1 , Sc in the first stitch, Do a sc Dec in the next stitch. Continue all around.
  • Fasten Off.

Fringe:
  • Cut the yarn into the required number of equal lengths.(I cut 4 strands in 6 cm each)
  • Fold the strands of yarn for one fringe in half, forming a loop at one end.
  • Take your hook and draw the loop through the stitch that you’re attaching the fringe to.
  • Draw the loose ends of the yarn through the loop.
  • Holding the top of the fringe in one hand, pull gently on the fringe ends with your other hand.
  • To finish, trim the ends of the fringe so that they’re even.

Wasn't That easy? this was my first attempt to crochet a wear-able so if you have any questions please comment below!

    1. Hello
      Well this pattern so for large size to be used as half - poncho which reached the mid section of your upper torso
      So If you want to make a poncho for size large or extra large all you would have to do is increase in the foundation chain and also the length by adding more rows
      Hope I helped! :D
