**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

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

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

How did you get the v look?

will the increases

How many would you chain for an adult size?

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.

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

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.

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.

Could you please do a video for adult poncho or could tell me how many chains that would be,I crochet all the time making,shawls,Afghans,ponchos,totes etc.

I love watching your videos and I love to crochet all kinds of things.

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??

Amyotte@personainternet.com

Please sent to this e-mail.

I would just go up a hook size or two

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

two of each

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

Round 2 =18x3dc

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

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

I'm with unknown, I am using 72 chains, single crochet next round. I have 18 sets of 3 DC. So if i have 9 sets of 3 DC , 1 increase and then 8 sets of 3 DC there is not a space left for the increase. Can anyone help me with this?

MommaDeb

unknown, did you watch the video, that should help you? I just watch the video, and it worked out with the chain 72 count. make sure to count all your stitches, maybe you counted wrong and follow the video, that really helps when you need help.

Hi how many chains would I started for a toddler who wears 5t.

this should fit a 5 t too, or you can go up a hook size, I cant change the chain count or it changes the whole pattern and I dont have time to change it all up.

Hi there I finish my first poncho of 3 years old... So want to do a 5 year old must I continue with 72 chains and use a 6mm hook?

Id follow the pattern exactly, this sized for toddler to 5 to 6 years old, its roomy

If I want to make it in one color, are there any changes in instructions?

no, you can follow the pattern with one color

Thank you so much for this pattern Amy. And the accompanying video is really helpful.

I've made several of these in a number of sizes over the years for nephews and nieces and myself. I'm just about to start one for my sister! The multiple of 8 note makes this very easy to size up or down as long as you mark where each corner is.

As knitter, this was my first ever crochet project and I've not looked back since!

Thank you for going to all this effort and providing it all for free, it's much appreciated.
