More About The Lace Panel Crochet Poncho

This poncho is seamless. Starting with the foundation chain you will work the front panel and then pick up stitch at the starting chain for the back of the poncho. Be sure to check the pattern to find your correct size. You will be measuring around your shoulders to get the size that you need, which is not the typical measurement that you need for creating garments.

Reminder about the yarn, this yarn does have a bit of a halo and can catch onto itself. This yarn is wound as a ball. You might find it better to take the yarn from the outside and not attempt to make it a center pull. If you try pulling the yarn from the center you run the risk of it snapping.

Watch the videos below to learn how to work your way through this neat crochet poncho.
