Paloma's Poncho

I made this poncho for my little cutie pie. I saw a similar poncho online, and decided to design my own interpretation of it. I added fringe to mine, which was missing from the one that I saw. I am a fringe lover, forgive me ;o) This is my first time writing down a pattern, so if it isn't clear let me know and I will correct it. And if you make one, by all means send me a picture! I'd love to see what people do with the pattern, and I will not post any pictures on the net or distribute it in any way.

Paloma's Poncho

I used an I hook and 1 skein of Red Heart Super Saver acrylic yarn. I am not real good at checking gauge, but it looks to be 3 1/2 stitches per inch width wise.

Chain(ch) 45
Row 1 Double Crochet(dc) in 3rd ch from hook, dc in each ch until end of row. Ch 2 and turn.
Row 2 DC in first dc, *ch 1 skip(sk) 1, dc in next dc*. Repeat * to * until end of row. Ch 2 and turn.
Row 3 Repeat row 2
Row 4 DC in first dc, *dc in ch 1 space, dc in next dc*. Repeat from * to * until the end. Ch 2 and turn.

Repeat rows 2 through 4 three times. Finish off.

Make two rectangles total, then sew as shown below:

You can leave it as is, or add fringe. This is a very quick project, and looks oh so cute :o) If you want the body longer, you need to make a longer foundation chain. This is really simple to do, it is multiples of 2 plus 1. You could easily make this for an adult with a longer starting chain.

This pattern is free for personal use only. Do not post the pattern on your website, but you can link to me.
