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.

  2. I am working with a local crochet shop to figure out a patter. If you would like I can post it here when it's done. I also have a cute mini-wrap skirt you might like for wearing over yoga/workout clothes.

  5. I really don't like these Show Off web. Sites, wen no pattern is offered for sale or free, & the ones that think they have shared pattern instructions, obviously have never read American crochet patterns, .... I'm very good at my craft, ... I m self taught from the late 60's wen the patterns were badly written & very little was in color, with difficult to figure black & white diagrams, ....there not much in Crochet that I haven't tried with much success, with good written directions ...but the stuff that has been shared is far from directions

    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!
