Modern Granny Winter Poncho

This Modern Granny Winter Poncho pattern, could really be called, “Modern Granny Meets Glacier Cowl”.  I decided for my third poncho in the series to add a ribbed turtleneck to it in the same stitch that I used when crocheting the Glacier Cowl.  If you are someone who doesn’t like anything on your neck, you can simply leave off the collar and still have a beautiful winter poncho.

I used 3 Caron Cakes in the Blueberry Shortcake colorway because I love the ease of the self-striping yarn.  You can always choose any worsted weight yarn in either a solid color or stripe it as you desire.  You can also adjust the size by simply adding more rounds to reach your desired length.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I Would like to use Wool Ease thick and quick super bulky yarn, M hook for the Modern Granny winter Poncho How many stitches do you recommend starting off with… do I just reduce the amount of stitches between center points?

    1. Mikey says:

      I’m really not sure. I haven’t crocheted with that yarn and thickness to alter this particular pattern. I don’t have an answer for you. You can reduce between the centre points as you suggested to make the next line smaller to comp for the thickness of yarn. But I don’t know how many stitches that would be.

    Thank you.

  5. Glenda says:

    Is there a video anywhere for this pattern?

    1. Mikey says:

      I’m sorry. I have not filmed this project.

  6. Yvonne says:

    I’m doing this now and I believe row 4 needs ch 3 at the end of the first repeat before you get to the ch 1 sp because you do a ch 3 after working in the sp. and you start with the repeat right after, which starts with a ch 3? Also at the end, before the sl st to finish the row?

    1. Yvonne says:

      I ripped it all out and started from the 96 ch. Followed the next step to the letter, and end up with about 5 extra sc before the join at the end of the row. Something isn’t quite right and not sure what it is.

    2. Johanna says:

      Love this pattern and just wondering if you have any numbers to follow for a child size (ie. is it multiple of 2 for foundation chain etc.)
      Many thanks for your fab work!

      1. Mikey says:

        I believe the multiple is 6 for this.

  7. Oldina says:

    When you are doing collar. The dc2tog from previous row are they treated as one or two separate dc

  8. Kim says:

    I’ve got some Big Cakes. How many yards is this pattern in the regular cakes?

  9. Cindy Dahners says:

    I am wondering if it would be possible to make this pattern for a 10 yr old….I think my granddaughter would love this…but I am not sure how to reduce the pattern to start with…any suggestions would be great

    1. Lexi says:

      I’m making one for a 10 year old as we speak. She’s very tall but I took 6 chain off the neck line and just did the rows until it was the right length! I hope that helps

  10. Alana Blakely says:

    Hi! This is a beautiful pattern. I was wondering how many beginning stitches to add to make the neck bigger? I am using a lighter weight yarn. Thank you for all your lovely patterns. They are so easy to follow.
    Cheers,
    Alana Blakely

    1. Alana – looks like to me that the neck needs to be in sets of four. Two front post dc, two back post dc around. – LJ
