Crochet multicolor poncho with fringe. How to make (my thoughts).


Here is how I see it.

Now when I published it I see I made a mistake. Second row are 12 dc separated by 1 chain, not treble crochet, as I marked them.
Every whole flower connects with 6 others by petals.
Every other row you'll have to finish with half of a flower at both ends.
The whole poncho must be bordered  with a row of sc or dc plus fringe.
I used Sugar'n Cream yarn. It's pretty thick.
Hook 5 mm.

Cotton
Put-up: 2.00 oz / 56 g, 6 Balls / Package
Length: 95 yd / 86 m

The diameter of the flower is 11 cm ( about 4.5 inches) .
I measured about 50 cm from shoulder to waist. So yarn must be thinner to fit 5 flowers in that length.
If you do more than 7 chain for the last row, it might look even better especially if you use thick yarn like Sugar'n Cream, then it could be 4 flowers from shoulder down to waist.
Good luck!

    1. Unfortunately, I have no idea where it's from. :(( And I don't have more detailed pattern. I don't like that crossing in front though, it doesn't look neat.

    1. Hi Rita,
      I don't offer any patterns on my blog. May be a diagram occasionally, some thoughts. People asked me how it's made and I shared my thoughts, since I don't have time to do the whole pattern for free and most important, it's somebody else pattern and copyrighted. That would be enough for me, but I understand, not for everybody. I am sorry you are disappointed, I guess you have to look somewhere else. My blog is for inspiration, just to see what is out there. I make my own patterns with diagrams, written instructions and pictures. I explain every step. So I have very good idea how patterns are written in American way. But I don't have time to do it for free, unfortunately, it's very time consuming. I want to bring it up again, this is not my pattern and I have no right to give instructions on it even if I had time to do so. Thank you for stopping by at my blog! I hope you find inspiration here, if not, I am very sorry.

  6. I'm glad you did what you could to help with the pattern. I'm going to tackle it for my 2 yr old grandbaby. As I see it, I just need to figure out a way to attach and border. I'm not exactly experienced, but I'm sure I can figure it out!! Wish me luck!!

    1. Hi Cyndi,
      you connect motifs on the go while making the last row. If you make arcs out of 7 chain stitches, then: ch3, sc in corresponding ch7 of adjacent flower, ch3 and so on. Each flower is connected with 6 others by 2 ch7 arcs with each.For 2-years old I would shape it something like that:

      And of course, I wish you luck!

  7. Thanks for the design, I loved this poncho and was so disappointed to find there wasn't a pattern. Will give it a go though using your design looks spot on to me :) I noted the bottom of the poncho appears to have half circles which seems strange I'm thinking could the one in the picture be machine made ? I agree about the crossing at the front don't understand what that is about why not just continue the design there doesn't seem to be a need for it x

    1. No, it's hand made and it's actually quite common to use halves of motifs or less or more. Good luck with your project!

  8. Hello Natalia! This is an excellent how-to. I can see you put serious time and thought into it. Someone wishing to make a garment inspired by the original, who has at least some crochet experience, has plenty of information to get started. Those wishing to duplicate it will, of course, have to buy the pattern, if one exists. Me personally, I'm here because I wanted to see how the flower itself was made. I'm thinking bright or neutral colours, and assembled into a window valance, or maybe even curtains! :). Thanks for sharing the results of your investigation. Linda, in Canada.
