One size fits most – front 80cm (32”), arm 55cm (22”)
You need: (for this size poncho)
I used cca 500g (1300 meters) of 90% soft baby acrylic/10% polyester (“Vlnika-Bibina”)
For edging and flowers cca 100g (94 meters) – (“Elian Sabina exclusive collection”)
You can really use any yarn which suites your purposes.
Crochet hook G/4mm
Yarn Needle, marker
Terms/Abbreviations: I used US terminology
slst. slip stitch
sc single crochet
dc double crochet
Basic pattern: I found this stitch on Google+
I made two rectangles measuring cca 45cm x 90cm (18”x36”).
If you would like to make the poncho smaller or bigger add or reduce the amount of “shells”.
The pattern is multiple of 12 + 1 + 3.
For this poncho it was 6 x 12 + 1 + 3 = 76 chain. Dc in 4th chain from the hook and follow the chart.
Joining the rectangles:
I sewed the rectangles together the way you can see on picture bellow. You can crochet them together if you like.
Edging - neckline:
I used very nice and fluffy yarn (“Elian Sabina exclusive collection”) for all edgings and the flowers. I simply went around the neckline with one row of dc’s. I think the yarn made it look interesting enough.
Edging at the bottom:
There are so many variations. I used simple edge: ch 12 – slst., evenly around the bottom edge with fluffy yarn.
I made five flowers. Follow the chart bellow. For the middle of the flower, I used “Bibina”, for the outside round (red) I used the fluffy yarn. Follow the chart below.
Sew them onto the seam of two rectangles.
And there it is - a soft, very luxurious and noticeable poncho. Not that hard to make, with many variations and the pattern is suitable for dedicated beginner as well.
