Check out this NEW video tutorial on my YouTube channel for the FREE Red Heart Perfect Poncho crochet pattern. The Perfect Poncho is a great beginner poncho pattern designed by Lisa Gentry. Come learn with me how to work up this poncho by making two identical panels.
Beginner Crochet Poncho-The Perfect Poncho:
The Perfect Poncho is one of the easiest patterns that I have worked. Although the stitch pattern is an easy repeat the finished results are stunning. Most of the beauty of this pattern comes from the wonderful yarn selected. Red Heart Colorscape is a long length color change giving beautiful patterns.
Because of the way that this pattern is written you can adjust it to your size, if it isn’t quite right for you. With a stitch multiple of 3 + 2 you can work it smaller or larger than what you will find in the FREE pattern. If you find that your poncho is too short or too long you can also adjust that. Just remember that you will need to work the repeat through row 6 to be able to work the finishing rows.
As you start the video you will notice that I am only working on a small swatch. The reason for this is that the stich pattern is the same for the whole row. Rather than make you watch me work the entire pattern I am just showing you the basics and you can use that to complete each of your rows of the beginner poncho pattern.
