My New Fascination With Ponchos!

Lately I have been into making Ponchos. I think they can be very versatile! There can be so many uses for them. They can be worn with jeans or date night attire and help keep you warm on a cool day or night.  They can have a Lacey look or be Cabled to have a heavier look.  Below are some of the Ponchos that I have finished and are available at Crochet & Craft items by Dunmirecrochetcorner on Etsy.

This one is fashioned for a more Casual and Modern Poncho with a hood.  The pattern for this poncho I found at Free Crochet Pattern 40493-C Vertical-Stripe Poncho: Woman’s Version : Lion Brand Yarn Company.  This is the basic pattern I ended up putting my own twist to it with buttons on the side and adding a hood.

 

 

Both of these were fashioned from the same pattern from 1970 but with different stitches and lengths. You can do so many different things with one pattern if you switch out stitches, colors and experiment with the length etc.  This is where I found this pattern PONCHO 3 COLOR – Groovy Crochet.

 

I had found quite a few patterns online for Ponchos and here are some of those.  Click on the picture and it will take you right to the pattern. It is amazing the different looks that you can come up with for a Poncho!

I love that the Poncho has so many ways you can incorporate them into your wardrobe.  Have you owned a Poncho and what have you worn it with?  I am in the process of making me some different types of Ponchos for myself.  Would love to hear from you and any ideas you have for wearing a Poncho.

Thanks for stopping by and entering my world of crochet!
