Spoil yourself with a poncho!

Good morning sweet people,

As you already guessed from the title of this post, the new cal (crochet-a-long) will be a poncho :) Yes, an adult granny poncho.

As we always crochet for the others, making blankets for all the members of the family and crocheted gifts for our friends, this project is totally selfish. For spring and autumn, a poncho is something special to wear…it makes you warm and happy for no reason :)

So, my sweeties, what do you think? Are you in? Are you totally thrilled by this project like myself? I think it will be awesome if once the ponchos are made, to set a particular day so we can all wear our ponchos :) A “poncho day” for you sweet ladies around the world ! I just love this idea :D

Let’s set up now some rules, shall we? ;)

Rule1: Crochet a granny poncho for yourself. And if it is not your kind of clothing to wear, crochet a poncho for your child, your daughter, your mother or as a gift for a special friend.

Rule2: No date limit to finish the poncho. You can begin it and finish it whenever you want :)

Rule3: No special colors to use. It can be very colorful (like mine ;) ) or crocheted with just one color or two…It is up to you!

Rule4: No special yarn to use also… You can crochet it with acrylic, wool, cotton or whatever you like.

Rule5: Pattern: HERE! It is a granny pattern, very simple and easy to follow. It is a graphic pattern but I tried, yesterday evening to add a small paragraph to it, to explain it with written directions… If you have any problem starting the poncho, don’t hesitate to tell and I will help you. This pattern is totally addictive, you’ll see ;)

If you want to see some crocheted ponchos with this pattern, go here!

So, these were the rules. Are you joining in this fun project? Come one! Let’s spoil ourselves with a poncho! Let it be a selfish project and we will all encourage one another in creating this “happy piece of clothing” to wear on the grayest days :)

If you want to join, leave me a comment on this post or here in this flickr discussion or here in this ravelry discussion and tell me if it will be for you or for somebody else and what yarn you’ll be using. Don’t forget to post your blog address if you have one!

I created also a flickr group and a ravelry one so we can all share our pics and progress…

I am sooo happy already :) Come on! Join in! It will be so much fun!

I’m waiting for youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Have a bright and colorful week!


P.S: – I’ll post next time, the beginning of my poncho :)

    I think I’m in too! :D
    It’ll be a (2nd) poncho for myself, maybe in white, so I’ll wear it all summer long! :D
    But I still have a ripple, a scarf and a shawl to finish, so I can’t say when I’m able to start!
    It’s a nice idea anyway! :D

  51. Pati from London says:

    Hello Angie, I used your poncho pattern last year to make two for my daughters. I loved making them and love how they look. Can I participate? Would that be cheatting? At the moment I am studying for some exams and don’t have a lot of time for crochet… Please let me know, Pati x

  52. Coucou, quand j’ai vu ton CAL chez Chahrazed des Envies de Sarrouska, j’ai vraiment eu envie de participer, mais comme d’hab, je me suis finalement décidée sur un coup de tête et j’ai oublié de te signaler ma participation, (c’est mon premier CAL), je viens donc m’inscrire et en même temps te dire que j’ai fini le poncho pour ma fille. Si tu veux, je peux t’envoyer des photos, ou tu peux aller voir sur mon blog ici:
    Merci pour ton tuto très clair et pour ton blog que j’ai découvert à cette occasion, ça donne envie de se lancer dans d’autres projets! Bonne journée

  53. Debi Y. says:

    I’m going to join in. I’ll be using ‘I Love This Yarn!’ acrylic in ‘pinkytoes sparkle’. Thanks for hosting this CAL. :)

  54. cevenole says:

    Bon week end

  55. Hello!
    Yesterday I was starting to do my poncho.
    It’s for myself.
    I’m using 100% acrylic yarn.
    You can see my crochet works at

  56. PaMiGu says:

    I am in too :D … just started now! I guess it will be for my daughter, 10 years :) …. I am using a 100% acrylic yarn (Ice Yarns Magic Light) in bright orange …. you can see my poncho growing (soon :) ) on ravelry (PaMiGu) :) …. thank your for this CAL :D

  57. Vivian says:

    Today i got the wool (acryl 100%) in different schades of blue and I’m going to make one for myself!

    • Vivian says:

      I had done abouw 10 rounds with the 100% acryl but is was stiff and i thought the colours i had where to dark/hard. And because i just startend with the crotcheting (after a couple of years) i’m discovering new sorts of woll all the time.
      I have started again now with Dralon acryl: much softer and flexibel and i have changed the colours to: turqouise, grey, white, beige and a aquamarijn colour. Lovely! This version i will finish!

  58. Panoramka says:

    Hello, I’m in the beginner-intense crochet period and I found your website… I juste loved the idea of making a poncho – so I’m joining you. It’s a poncho for my daugther (3 years), the yarn is a mix of cotton and viscose and it’s coming out splendidly. Almost finished. :D Thank you for the inspiration on your website!

  59. elaine says:

    I am in I just bought yarn as I was thinking of doing a shawl or poncho.

  60. Hola muy linda propuesta he realizado varios, se vale que participe con uno ya terminado que curiosamente sigue el patrón que nos brindas, estaré atenta a tus comentarios, para subirlo en mi blog, me llevo tu link para que más amig@s se anoten, tienes un blog precioso

  61. Hello,

    I have just found this post and I have decided to make a granny poncho because I love granny squares and stripes!

    So lovely!

  62. Tanya says:

    I’m making two of these at the moment, one for my nearly 5 year old, one for my nearly 10 year old – and then I need to buy the yarn to make one for the 7 year old!
    As soon as I’m finished, I’ll post them on my blog, and link it to here for the pattern.

    • Tanya says:

      P.S. If you don’t mind, I’d like to write the pattern in words, too. I noticed a few people have asked, but you were unsure of the way to do that.

  63. Beauty says:

    Iam definately going to make one for me

  64. Debbie Rines says:

    Count me in. The hard part will be choosing a color I will wear all the time. I also have 3 baby girls in the family, 18 months and younger so this is one project for their next Christmas. Thanks for the pattern and I love your blog. You are so sweet to share.
