This pattern collection of ten beautiful poncho crochet patterns is a fun look at all the ways a poncho can be made to cut down the fall chill.
When it comes to the winter and fall weather, it is no secret that it can get quite cold. While sometimes it might not be cold enough to wear a thick jacket, sometimes a jumper just doesn’t cut it. In this situation, there is one easy solution to this problem — chunky crochet ponchos.
While ponchos are not as popular in recent years, they are still a fantastic item of clothing to have. They are useful to chuck on if you are feeling the chill at home, or if you are relaxing by a fire or on the beach on a fall evening.
They are a great way of keeping warm, and they can have interesting and beautiful designs too.
Given that ponchos are not as popular as they used to be, they are slightly more difficult to purchase in stores. As a result of this, a great way to own one is to make one yourself!
While ponchos may seem quite difficult to make, it is surprisingly easy. In addition to this, they do not take long to make too — even for beginners! In this article, we have chosen our favorite poncho patterns that we came across. They are all reasonably priced or free and vary in their difficulty.
Oh, but before you go grabbing your yarn, be sure to pin this pattern collection to your favorite crochet patterns board on Pinterest so you can find it again when you need a fun poncho to make!
