You’ll love the texture of this beautiful poncho!
This crochet poncho is fabulous! Even if you’re a beginning crocheter, this is an achievable project. This poncho is constructed with rectangles so there’s no increasing and decreasing to keep track of. The braided texture is a combination of basic crochet stitches that are easy to master, even if you’re new to the craft. And not least, it uses self-striping bulky yarn (5) that works up quickly and takes care of your color changes for you.
This poncho is a great addition to your wardrobe and if you are new to crochet, there’s nothing more satisfying than having a major project like this to look back upon with satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment. And if you’re more experienced, it’s the perfect project for those times that you want to multi-task or binge watch TV while crocheting.
