Girl’s Crochet Poncho – 8-10 Years of Age

Crochet Girl’s Poncho 8 -10 Years Old

The Crochet Girl’s Poncho is a one-piece garment that slides over the head of the child. There have been many requests from Crocheters to have the adult size called the Crochet Cool Poncho using Caron Cakes substituted for two reasons:

  1. Make the neck opening smaller.
  2. Make the garment one piece instead of two pieces for the adult size.

This pattern will allow you to get started. Start the same for both Adult and Child. The neckline for us adults will be smaller than the Crochet Cool Poncho. Follow the pattern as suggested and make the poncho as long as you need it to be. Instead of stopping for 16″ for the child size, just continue to crochet until your desired length. The Cool Poncho has fringe and you can opt to do fringe to skip it.

Yarn Substitution & Adult Sizing

If you want to substitute Bernat Pop with Caron Cakes. You will see need 3 balls of Caron Cakes. If making an adult size, you can continue to add to the pattern and make it longer. You will need to figure out how much more yarn you may need. For Caron Cakes or Bernat Pop, plus 1 extra ball will be needed.

Using the Girl’s Poncho for a starting will stop the plunging neckline if that is an option.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
