The colourful project is crocheted directly out of the ball itself. Meaning, the yarn is doing the work for the colour layout.

The stitch uses is the Houndstooth Stitch which is tight and has some textured applied to it. I believe this is a great cheerful project to enjoy.

Bigger Poncho Sizes

We have bigger sizes with the same stitch combination that the baby version has. You will notice they are Cowl Necks and have sleeves as well. We don’t have an adult version with a hood on file.

    Thank you Michael!!
    That is what I did. Added 4 more stitches and it turned out fine….I think…she hasn’t tried it on yet! Now, I’m working on making a bigger one but haven’t gotten to the neck yet….
    You are awesome! Don’t apologize! We all know you have a lot going on!
    Crochet is all about patience after all, isn’t it?

    • Mikey

      Yeah patience and not being afraid to try. I’m glad you tried it and didn’t wait for me.

  2. Cheryl

    Any news on the different front and back number of stitches?

    • Mikey

      I’m sorry. I’m been working until 11 pm at night. I’m so behind. Let me do the math now and push this stuff off my desk. I have to go to the studio and turn off the equipment. Give me a bit and I will count stitches now.

    • Mikey

      I did the long math in subtraction as per the Yarnspirations design. The back is shorter across by 4 sts. My guess is that the shape of the front of a body needs a bit more stitches so it’s bigger by 4 sts across. We assume that the body is symmetrical from front to back but it’s not.

      So as per the design, it’s shorter by 4 sts. If it bothers you, you can just add 4 sts to the ch 17 to make it the same. That’s what I would do. I apologize for not putting your needs in priority for my to do list. That’s my fault and I overlooked it. I have a number of really upset people right now as I am stumbling.

      Enjoy your Sunday. Michael

      • Cheryl

        Absolutely no worries! Life can get like that sometimes. I just created my “to do list” yesterday and it was 3 pages long!! Just gotta put one foot in front of the other and do one thing at a time. Life still presses on regardless and somehow it all works out. Thanks for your help and the great videos! Cheryl

      • Mikey

        When did life get some complicated eh! It’s 8 pm and I am still working! 🙂

  3. Darlene W.

    Would chaining 4 more stitches on the neck work or make it too big?

    • Cheryl

      I found my numbers didn’t match up either so I was thinking of just adding more to the neck chain as well? I just wasn’t sure if the hole would then be too big? Maybe the back is supposed to be smaller?

  4. Cheryl

    Started this project with the video and it’s great! I really appreciated the hint on how to tell if it’s a single or double stitch that you’re doing. So helpful!! I did my chain a bit tight so it’s a but bunchy at the bottom but that’s okay. A learning process! I kept forgetting if I had started on a single or double stitch so I used 2 different colour stitch markers to help. I suppose I should be able to know by looking at it but maybe that will come.

    I had also tried your suggestion on holding your wool when I started crocheting and am so glad I found it. I struggled with that and in all the books I looked at, this was not suggested and yet I love this way.

    I just noticed you have a book coming out! Congratulations! I’ll look forward to reading it. A huge step in your crochet journey I’m sure. Thanks for all you do for us newbies! Especially during these crazy lockdown times!

    Good Morning from Saskatchewan!!
    I am making these for my granddaughters, but want to make them bigger. I figured multiples of two, but how do I figure out the neck/hood size?? How many stitches on the shoulders and how many do I skip?? I am newer to crochet and need help please!
    Thank You!!

    • Mikey

      Darlene. I am really not sure without doing testing trials. I don’t have any immediate answers on that. You are right. The multiples are 2. If there is time, just look up human clothing sizes on Google. That gives you dimensions. That will help you with neck holes and stuff. That’s what I would do. I’m really short of time to put a few days into research and trials at the moment. I’m sorry.

      • Darlene W.

        That’s OK. I just thought there was some sort of math involved.

      • Darlene W.

        Good morning! Still working on the poncho…. I have done the neck hole and working down the back. I’ve noticed the front and back don’t line up. Reading the pattern, you start with 68(67), but going down the back, there’s only 63. Is this correct, or have I missed something 🤔?

      • Darlene W.

        Shouldn’t the front stitches match the back? I started with 68 (67). But down the back is 63? Reread the pattern and that’s what it said too….

      • Mikey

        Leave it with me. I will revisit next week.

    • Cheryl

      Greetings from Calgary Alberta! I’m new to crochet so don’t have an answer for you but I did notice that there are two similar patterns for ponchos for older children and adults. Perhaps you might want to check those out? Happy Crocheting!

      • Mikey

        Yes you are right. But the older versions don’t have the hood. Just cowl necks. I believe the You and Me versions are for older toddlers as they match a doll size.

  6. Cheryl

    Yeah…I just discovered there’s a video for this now!! I’m off to Michael’s for yarn! Thanks, a new project for me!

  7. In the video you say to increase every 4th row. Is that to be done all the way up to the height you need or till you reach the required number of stitches for your size?

  8. Laura

    Can this be added to Ravelry? thank you

    • It is not our pattern. It was written by the designers at Spinrite for Michaels Stores.

  9. Cheryl

    Would love a tutorial for this! What size is the crochet hook? What skill level is this pattern? Thanks

    • Mikey

      Good eye to have missed the Hook Size. I have just updated the PDF to include that. Not sure how I missed that. It’s an easy level project. I don’t have plans at this time to film this up. I’m sorry.

      • Cheryl

        No worries, I’m sure you can’t film everything. I’m just finishing one of your videos on a baby sweater, “Take it from the Top”. It’s really sweet!! At times a challenge but your videos are so helpful! I’m new to crochet but perhaps I’ll try reading the poncho written pattern for the first time. I’m sure with Google there’s lots of help if I get stuck. 😆 Thanks for doing this…I love your videos!!

    Was hoping to get the pattern

    • Just click the Blue Button to get the pattern.

      • Ruth Garcia

        On there is a pattern called Lounge Around Crochet Blanket Hoodie uses Bernat Blanket Twist almost looks like a long sweatshirt. Sizes XS -5XL. I see everyone keeps asking you for an adult size hooded poncho. Depending on what you consider to be a poncho, this might be the ticket. Love your tutorials Mikey.
