Crochet Fall Poncho
Fall is my favorite season. I love the blue skies, cool evenings and changing colors of the leaves. This Textured Fall Poncho is perfect for changing weather. Wear it to that Friday night football game or the Saturday afternoon soccer game.

I used about 2 1/2 Caron Cakes in Plum Crisp to make this one-size poncho but change to any worsted weight yarn as you desire. If you need it larger, just keep going until it’s long enough for you. I’m somewhere around a medium or large.

Comments on “Crochet Fall Poncho Pattern + Tutorial”
This is a favorite poncho pattern, I make the neck smaller if needed by adding ribbing. I learned adding ribbing to project from Yarn and Chai channel a couple of years ago and now use it on my top-down hats and wrist warmers, etc. You will need to use at least one size smaller hook, sc all around making sure that the count is an even number. Chain how ever “tall” you want your ribbing to be, sc in each chain back to neck line, slip stitch in next 2 sc on neck, ch1, turn, and working in back loops only sc in each st back up the row. *Chain 1, and in blo work sc back down to neck line, slip stitch in next 2 sc on neck,ch1, turn, and work sc in blo back up the row* Repeat from * to * around the piece. I join with slip stitch in blo and then put yarn on needle to pull last bit together at the bottom and fasten off and weave in my ends. This join looks like another rib to me.
Thank you for leaving this very thoughtful comment for others to consider. Appreciate it.
I’ve made this pattern for myself and I love it! I wear it all the time. I’d like to make one for my 13-year-old niece but I’d need to make the neck opening smaller. What is the starting multiple, please?
We are still trying to work that out. The neck has 2 corners in it… so it complicates it in the multiples. We are trying to see if there are other patterns out there. Michael
Hi can you make the neckline smaller my mom has a thin neck
Hello Jeanne! I LOVE this poncho! I’ve been searching the web high and low to find the perfect poncho pattern for me, and here it is! Thank you so much for sharing this with us!
Hi Mikey, I want to use larger yarn and a number 7 crochet hook but when I’ve had a go at it the neck opening is too large. Should I begin with a smaller amount in my chain?
I keep missing stitches going from 102 to 110 in row 2. I can’t figure out where I’m missing the stitches. Is there a graphic diagram of this pattern?
No there isn’t at this time. We will have to hand draw one in the future.
Mikey, any helpful hints on what I could be missing. I’m good with row 1 (96), row 2 (102) but missing in row 3. I can’t figure out where I got lost.
I think Jeanne has addressed this concern.
I love this thank you for hour work. When I get mine done I will submit a photo. Delores Palin
