My First Series-Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho

Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho-My First with Marly Bird and Red Heart Yarns
It’s finally here! The poncho project that I have been teasing you about is FINALLY here. I just released the newest FREE pattern in the Red Heart’s My First Series-Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho.

This is the last pattern for the My First Series in 2016, and we are sure going out with a BANG. This pattern can take your planned pooling love to the next level. This is one of those projects that people will ask you where you purchased it. It is a trendy, yet classic wardrobe piece.

When designing this pattern I started with a planned pooling argyle scarf and then added on to it to make the rest of the poncho. One of the great things about this project is that the entire piece is made out of the same stitch. The design may look complicated but really it is all done in moss stitch.Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho-My First with Marly Bird and Red Heart Yarns

The Planned Pooling Argyle Poncho was designed with the beginner planned pooler in mind. Please note that this is not the best project to start with for a beginner crocheter. If you are new to planned pooling you can take a look at my 10 Secretes to Planned Pooling post and video or my Best Crochet Tutorial For Planned Pooling Argyle post and video.

Not only can you get the pattern for FREE but I also released a tutorial video on my YouTube channel. I walk you through everything you need to know about the project. The project is made from a really affordable yarn, Red Heart Super Saver. You will need your variegated color choice and a coordinating color for the remainder of the poncho.

You can see all of the patterns in Red Heart’s My First Series on my YouTube channel. Remember to subscribe so you don’t miss when the next one is released, there is a new one each month. I can’t wait to share something new with you next year.
