About Ponchos and a pattern :D

Hello my friend,

I’ve finished today the baby poncho for my niece Clara who’s six months old…and I’ll put here in this post the pattern if someone is interested in crocheting one…It is sooo simple to make and so cute for the children:) It really makes a great gift :)

I’ve already made 3 ponchos…2 in march and 1 now…

The 2 I made in March were bigger (for my own girls: 3 and 5 years old)…

Here they are:

and the last one is for a baby:

For the pattern:

All you have to make is a chain big enough to enter through baby’s head and a multiple of 8: (It is very important that the chain is a multiple of 8!! For the baby I made a chain of 72)

and after that you follow this graphic pattern:

and you continue this way until you crochet the length you desire…

You’ll see, it is very easy and quick!

P.S: This below part was added on march 2012:

I want to try here to explain a little the pattern with written instructions. I’ll use the U.K terms. Remember a tr in U.K terms means a dc in U.S terms and a bride in french terms.

To begin your poncho: make a chain multiple of 8 and big enough to enter the head. close it with a slip stitch.

Round 1: 1 tr, 1tr, 1tr, 1 ch, 1tr, 1tr, 1tr, 1ch on every stitch of the beginning chain.

Round 2: Count your clusters of trebles. If there is 16 like in the graphic above you should make now: “3tr,1ch,3tr” on the first ch between the clusters of trebles of round1, then “3tr,1ch” on the next 7 ones, then “3tr,1ch,3tr” on the 9th one then “3tr, 1ch” on the next 7 ones again…

In fact, you should fold your round1 in two. and make two groups of “3tr,1ch,3tr” on each part of your round1…

Don’t know if I’m making myself clear, please take a look at the graph to know exactly where to make your two groups of “3tr,1ch,3tr”

Round3: make “3tr,1ch,3tr” on the chain between the two clusters of 3tr then continue making “3tr,1ch” on each other ch of round2, then again “3tr,1ch,3tr”on the second chain between the two clusters of 3tr , then again “3tr,1ch” on each other ch of round2…

etc etc

For all the other rounds, you should work the same….

When to stop? when you’ll have the lenght you desire for your poncho :)

I hope I made it a little clear with these written instructions…

In march 2014, I’ve made two more ponchos for my girls who are now 8 and 6 years old… You can see them in that post right here :)

Happy crocheting to you all!

    Just beautiful, love the bright colours. I was thinking this would make a great gift for my niece who’ll be 4 in a few months time, how long was the chain you used for the poncho for your 5 year old if you can remember. My niece does not live near me so I can’t use her as a model.

  20. Shivani says:

    Hi,
    Great poncho.
    I didnt know how to make a poncho but was determined to make one for myself. My idea was to make big granny squares and join them. Working on it currently, hope it turns out right.

    But this poncho is great! Please tell me for adult sizes do we have to keep it as multiples of 8 or is there some other number.

    You have inspired me to make one for my daughter as well.

    Thank you

    Shivani

    • Sucrette says:

      Thank you Shivani,
      Yes, if you want to follow this pattern you have to begin it with a multiple of 8 chain…big enough to enter through an adult head :)
      I will make one for myself and post about it when I’ll have more time!
      Have a nice day!

  23. Anat says:

    Your blog is amazing. I adore the colors and playfulness of your designs. This is very inspiring. Thank you for being so talented and sharing with us.
    Please help with one questions: I am a beginner and about to knit the poncho for 2 girls (6 year olds. One lives in Tel Aviv and the other one in Budapest), they are my nieces.

    I am not sure how to choose the right yarn? I have no problem with the knitting part. Should I look for a certain mixture? (cotton, synthetic, wool…?), should it be light/heavy and so on. I need to knit as soon as possible as they both have a new little brother and I would like to send it to them in the mail really soon :-)

    Anyone, please help…. Thank you so so much!

  30. Piglet says:

    what wonderful colours you use, I too love colour.
    I am new to crochet after many years but becoming a grandmar inspired me to try again.
    I have started on your baby poncho for a one year old.
    I think my wool is a lot finer, DK, as I had to do 88 stitches!!
    I am using 4.5mm hook.
    It’s looking good and I am really enjoying it thanks to your blog.
    Can you give any tips on changing to a new colour. I can’t get it just right.?
    Also do you do 3chains when you move into the next round?
    Here’s hoping you have time to response.
    Thanks for your blog it’s a real motivator

    • Sucrette says:

      Hello Piglet,
      Thank you for ur message:)
      About changing the color: I just cut the yarn and make a double node with the two yarn ends (the old color and the new one) and continue crocheting…
      and yes, I do, 3 chains instead of the first treble of each round :)
      Have a nice day!

    Hi Sucrette,

    Thank you for sharing the poncho-pattern. I made one for my baby girl this weekend (see a picture on my blog). It would be great when you could add to the pattern how you crochet the gulfed border, I tried something, but mine did not turn out so nicely as yours. I’m happy enough, though, the pattern is lovely.

  40. Andrea says:

    Hi Sucrette,

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and have been wanting to make a poncho for myself. I’m not that experienced though. So here are some difficulties that I’ve encountered. I am sharing them with you hoping you might give me some advice.

    I am using a K hook as the yarn I’m using is thicker. Sticking to the pattern I end up with pretty big gaps. Should I increase the number of double crochets to close those.

    Thanks, Andrea

  54. Jutta says:

    hello sucrette,
    i have a counting problem! i think it’s not only enough to have a multiple of eight! when you start with a chain of 72 you have 9 blocks of 3 dc on each side of the middle, where i crochet two 3 dc blocks in one chain. but when i start with a chain of 80, i have 9 blocks on one side and 10 blocks on the other side. is this right? the one side of the poncho will get a bit bigger as the other side now. is that a problem? can you see that, when the poncho is finished?
    greets from germany

  69. Kelly says:

    I’m having a problem.. both w/ the graph and the written instructions. I’m sure it’s me.. but I’m hoping you can help me. When I get to the end of Rnd 1 there is one chain left. The graph says to sc, but I want to ch1 and then slip stitch to the top of the ch 3. But if I do that then I can’t do the next Rnd of stitches.. b/c I’m in the top of the ch3, so I’m thinking I either need to slip stitch to the ch 1 space, or turn my work. Did you turn you work every Rnd? I hope I haven’t confused the situation even more. Thank you for trying to help me!

  72. Brenda says:

    Hi Sucrette

    Greetings from Brixham in Devon, England!

    I have made this Poncho in a baby pattern, I needed it to fit a 3 to 6 months size.

    I tried it with 80 stitches but this worked out bigger one side than the other. I tried it with 88 chain and a smaller crochet hook and this was perfect. I made it in dark mint green and white but instead of the shell trim I put tassels all the way around and made a beenie hat in the mint green with a white crocheted bow attached. Also as I am left handed I had to reverse your diagram in my head so it worked out.

    Really pleased with the finished article.

    Thanks again
    Brenda

  73. Kelly Barker says:

    Hi love your poncho, i am new to crochet, and was wondering if you or anyone else can tell me what wool/yarn to use and what size hook, much appericiared really want to try doing this poncho

    Thanks kelly

    • Etty says:

      Since there is No gauge and this poncho is the most easy poncho I ever saw, It is up to you to decide which yarn you like, on the yarn label it will tell which hook / needle fits, but you will have to determine if the result too tide or too loose, and than to switch to a larger smaller hook.

  74. monica says:

    bellisimo poncho perchè è facilmente adattabile anche per gli adulti dovresti però indicare la grossezza della lana usata e il numero di uncinetto relativo, cosi per noi risulta più semplice realizzarlo. complimenti

    hello, j am again , j have a big problem. j am making a poncho for my daughter of 15 years, a size M about, with a crochet of 3 . j have starter 116 chains but after 20 laps , j realized that freezes or better jumps on the shoulders . I don’t know if I explained well. perhaps, as an adult I had to increase more mesh instead of 3TR 1ch 3TR, j must make from 10 laps 6TR 2 ch 6TR.I can make a suggestion with email. thank you in advance

    Hi, I just love your ponch. I was looking to make one for my daughter (8yrs) and niece (2 yrs). My niece stays in US while I’m in India, so I’m not sure of her measurement. Can u pls give me an idea of the beginning no of chains. Thank you.

    • Aussiebelle says:

      I have made one for my daughter who is 7 going on 8 and I made it using a 110 chain which is big so I just made her a crocheted cord to draw it in so it will fit her for a few years yet.

  77. mandi says:

  78. Julieta says:

    I am currently finishing a poncho following your tutorial and I am wondering how did you finish yours? I don’t seem to understand how to knit the last row, as it looks different than the rest in the pictures. Have you knitted *5tr, 1tr*?

    • Aussiebelle says:

      I am on to my second and third poncho. So to complete the poncho you continue as tho your going to start a new row. What you need to do after the last treble and chain slip stitch into top of 3 chain and then your finished.

  100. Juanita Rynearson says:

    I have made four ponchos for my two granddaughters and they love them so much. I made one in school colors so she could wear it to school. I put a backwards single crochet for an edge on the bottom. it gave the poncho a little weight. This poncho pattern is awesome and so easy to do. I am thinking about making me one for the fun of it.
    Thank you for the symbol crochet patterns and your inventive mind.

    I made the poncho for my 7 yr old granddaughter. I used multicolored yarn so didn’t need to change yarn colors. I loved making it and she loves wearing it! Thanks so much! I hadn’t crotched since the 1970′s and only rescently took it up again this past January. So far I’ve made 4 infinity scarves, 3 slouchy hats, 2 baby blankets, a poncho and lastly a cute shortsleeve cardigan, all crotchet! I think I need an intervention….. ;-)

    Hi

    Love this pattern and have 6 granddaughters, not sure how big a chain to start with, one is 10 and the other 8, smaller than average do you think 88 stitches is enough, if I want yo use a heavier yarn how do I adjust the needle size. Thank you

      Dear Naomi,
      You have to use the needle hook size suggested on your yarn…then make a chain and try to make it big enough to go through the child’s head…sorry but I really cant tell you how many chains to start with…it depends on your yarn and the child’s head!
      Happy crocheting!

    Thanks, have to switch to a smaller hook using a worsted weight and the hook size for the yarn makes it too big. Will let you know how it works out.
    You are so kind for doing this.

    When you get settled in from vacation, would you be able to tell me how you did the green scalloped edge on the little poncho? I’m working on making several for granddaughters and thought it’d be nice to each be a little different!
    Merci!
