I had to show you this quick and easy crochet poncho pattern. It is free from Lion Brand Yarn, and I am having so much fun making them for the Knit-A-Square Charity.
The pattern uses a larger N size hook and crochets up so fast that I have already made two! :)
The first one is done in the Homespun Yarn by Lion Brand that the pattern is written for in the Praire color.
and I just finished a second one in my favorite worsted weight acrylic yarn made for Hobby Lobby, "I Love This Yarn".
Can you see Emmitt in the photo above? He is such a great helper! He is my little shadow. :)
I used lavendar and purple and put a row of bobbles in the yoke.
I have never made or worn a poncho before, but they are really fun and warm! I am excited to keep trying different kinds of yarn to see how it changes the drape and warmth.
The whole pattern is worked in the round using a half double crochet stitch so it it still tightly woven, but hangs a little more softly than a single crochet stitch.
I also wanted to let you know that I am excited to get caught up on all of your posts. Happily this time of year is very busy, but it interferes with my blogging and socializing time! Heeee!
Emmitt and I promise to be back to our normal commenting soon!
