Rainbow Poncho

Rainbow Poncho pattern

One size fits most
One square cca 20cm x 20cm (8”x8”)

You need: (for this size poncho)
I used 400g (1240 meters) of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic baby yarn (17 different colors)
Crochet hook G/4mm
Yarn Needle, marker

Terms/Abbreviations: I used US terminology
ch     chain
slst.   slip stitch
sc      single crochet
dc     double crochet
st      stitch

At first you need to make 16 squares, each a different color.
I used “Lemonade swirl granny square”. I made 10 rounds which gave me cca 20cm x 20cm (8”x8”) square.
You can use any square you like. This one just suited my purposes.

Joining the squares:
I crocheted round 11 using /2dc’s – ch1/ in ch spaces from previous round and /3dc’s - ch3 – 3dc’s/ in the corners.
I was joining the squares as I went along (detail on the pictures).

Edging neckline:
I made /2dc’s – ch3 – slst. in second dc/ in every ch space from previous round (detail on the pictures).

Edging at the bottom:
I crocheted one big row/round of /2dc’s – ch1/ in ch spaces from previous row and /3dc’s - ch3 – 3dc’s/ in two corners.
To finish the bottom edge of, I crocheted the bubble edge: ch8 – 3dc’s together into the 3rd ch from the hook – ch3 - slst. into the same ch – ch5 – skip one ch space – sc into next ch space (detail on the picture).

And there it is - a soft yet very noticeable poncho. Simple to make, with many variations and the pattern is suitable for dedicated beginner as well.
If you come up with any problems or difficulties, write to me, and I’ll be more than happy to help.

Have a nice week
