Crochet Child's Poncho Tutorial with Video

Crochet Child's Poncho

This Child's Poncho was made for my 3 year old, but can be adjusted for different sizes. If you want to make it for a smaller child I would go down a hook size and go up a hook size for an older child. It's so cute to wear for any occasion. Enjoy this Crochet Child's Poncho Pattern!
Supplies:
H hook
Abbreviations:
sc=single crochet
sl st=slip stitch ch=chain
dc=double crochet

Poncho Tutorial

I made this for my 3 year old. I did this in multiples of 8. So I chained 72 with a H hook. Now if you want to Make this for a different size, then make sure its in a multiple 8 and it can fit over the child's head, you can always change the hook size as well.
Rnd 1:  Start with Pink yarn, Chain 72, sl st to join to make a ring. Sc in each chain around. sl st. -72 sc
Rnd 2: Sl st with White yarn, Chain 3 (Counts as a dc), dc in the next two sc, *skip sc, Chain 1, dc in the next 3 sc, *Repeat around, sl st 18(3 dc's)
Rnd 3: Sl st into the chain 1 space, then sl st with Pink yarn, Chain 3 (Counts as a dc), work 2 dc in the same chain 1 space, *Chain 1,  work 3 dc in the next chain 1 space, *Repeat for a total of 9(3 dc's),Chain 1, work 3 dc in the next chain 1 space, chain 1, work 3 dc, (creates an increase, so you have a 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next chain 1 space after 9( 3 dc's ), **Chain 1, work 3 dc the next chain 1 space, **Repeat for a total of 8 times, ch 1, then work 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc increase in the last ch 1 space, ch 1, sl st on top of the beginning ch 3 space.
Rnd 4:  Sl st into the chain 1 space, then sl st with White yarn, Chain 3 (Counts as a dc), work 2 dc in the same chain 1 space, *Repeat for a Total of 9(3 dc's), Chain 1, work 3 dc, chain 1, 3 dc in the next chain 1 space (creates an increase), **Chain 1, work 3 dc in the next chain 1 space, **Repeat for a Total of 8(3 dc's), chain 1, work 3 dc, chain 1, 3 dc, in the beginning chain 1 space (creates an increase), sl st
Rnds 5-20:  Sl st into the next chain 1 space, then sl st with Pink yarn, *Repeat Round 3, but alternate with white and pink yarn each round. I did 20 Rounds of Pink and White back and forth, continue until your desired length. Weave in the Ends.

Do we need to slip stitch 2times if using the same colour yarn?

Crochet Jewel said...

I would slip stitch into the chains space, but if you arent changing colors then that no more slip stitches.

Brittanie Corbin said...

How did you get the v look?

Crochet Jewel said...

will the increases

SANDY S said...

How many would you chain for an adult size?

Cora Leibowitz said...

Sandy S.......I made an adult poncho for myself and started with 108 chains. If you google ponchos and take a look at some of the adult patterns you should be able to get an idea of what size you start with.

I am finishing my second child's poncho. I added Pom poms and fringe. They both turned out beautiful. Don't know how yo upload the pictures.

Carol said...

Hi!
I would like to make this Poncho for a 2 year old in the Feathers wool could you please tell me how many stitches I would need
Thank you

Kim said...

I don't think the pattern is correct… I tried to do a total of nine clusters and it was uneven. Do you need to have a clusters and then an increase, then another eight clusters in your second increase. I also wish you would have shown how to start the next rose because it looks like you only did the chain three and then one more double crochet… Very confused right now.

Crochet Jewel said...

Did you watch the video?

Sl st into the chain 1 space, then sl st with Pink yarn, Chain 3 (Counts as a dc), work 2 dc in the same chain 1 space, *Chain 1, work 3 dc in the next chain 1 space, *Repeat for a total of 9(3 dc's),Chain 1, work 3 dc in the next chain 1 space, chain 1, work 3 dc, (creates an increase, so you have a 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in next chain 1 space after 9( 3 dc's ), **Chain 1, work 3 dc the next chain 1 space, **Repeat for a total of 8 times, chain 1, work 3 dc in the beginning chain 1 space, Chain 1, sl st in the beginning Chain 3 (this will create a 3 dc, chain 1, 3 dc increase in the beginning 3 dc) sl st.

Gail Keyser said...

Gail Keyser said...

Brian Amyotte said...

Learning and still learning....did a poncho for 8 to 10 years, but want to do for 4 to 5 yr. You have lost me, with doing multiple of 8, adding the chains, understand, but how many in between, do I do the 3 dc, not quite getting it?? Was going to do 80 chains...can you help??

Crochet Jewel said...

I would just go up a hook size or two

Maxine Hill said...

how many balls of wool for each colour did you use?

Crochet Jewel said...

two of each

Ann Marie Ruth said...

I am new to crocheting and in very confused I chained on 80 therefore not sure when to increase because it does not match up with the instrutions of 9 please advise

Crochet Jewel said...

i would chain 72, I made this pattern for 72, then go up a hook size or two to make it bigger

Verona Cruz said...

Instead of connecting the rows using a slip stitch, I skip the chain 1 after the 3rd dc and single crochet into the 3rd chain of the first chain 3. Doing it this way looks cleaner and you're not losing your beginning chain 3 under the final 3 dc in the round.

Sarah Stewart said...

The video does a increase at the end of the row too. There aren't enough ch in mine to do an extra inc

Crochet Jewel said...

ok I rewatched the video, it should be chain 72, then sc around, which is 72 sc, then 3 dc, ch1, skip 1, for you are right, 18x 3dc,. Round 3: Then do 9(3dc), increase, then 8 (3dc), then increase for round 3. thats what I did in the video, Im not sure why you arent getting it right, make sure you are doing 72 stitches, and make sure you start your first stitch as a Ch3, which counts as dc, dc in the next 2, ch 1, skip 1 sc, then 3 dc in the next 3 sc, *Repeat across.

Don Hardman said...

How many chains would I need to make a 7yr size, and would I follow the increases as per your 3yr old pattern?
I really love the look of this poncho but not sure how and where to do the increases for a 7yr old.
Would appreciate your help. Thank you very much
Thelma

Crochet Jewel said...

you can go up a hook size for a bigger size.

Unknown said...

I am in the same situation as the above. I need to know how many DC to do before I do the increases. Unfortunately, I only have one needle right now, so using a larger needle won't work for me.

Lorraine Gaye said...

I don't have a larger hook. I need to know how many dc to do before I increase. I did 80 chain stitches.

Crochet Jewel said...

try this, I have the pattern as chain 72, but for 80 see if this works, you should be able to do 3 dc, ch 1 (9 times), then increase, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, then 3 dc, ch 1, (9 times), then increase, 3 dc, ch 1, 3dc, in the beginning chain 1 space

Unknown said...

Round 2 =18x3dc
Round 3 9dc+1increase= 8 ch1 spaces left, dc×3 in each 8 space =0 for final increase??

Stella flores said...

I am msking it with chsin 88. So the 9 clusters dont work out evenly. So how do we figure that out, please.
