Crochet Fall Poncho Pattern
Fall is a great time for wearing a poncho. The air is crisp and a poncho is the perfect accessory to wear to those outdoor activities. I wear mine in my cool office too. The poncho keeps my arms and hands free for typing all day.
When the new colors of Caron Cakes came out in August, the Plum Crisp immediately gave me that cozy, autumn day feeling. I used front post stitches on this simple design because I love the texture of a slightly ribbed look.
This poncho will fit up to a 1XL, but to make it larger, just continue the pattern until you reach the desired size. You will need more yarn to make it bigger.
