See also my free Denim Patchwork Poncho pattern, adapted from this pattern.

This lightweight poncho has a streamlined silhouette and a lovely subtle texture. And, you can crochet it quickly and easily from just two Caron Cakes using only elementary crochet stitches!

The color used here is Turkish Delight, which is one of my favorite cake colors. I think it goes exceptionally well with denim.

Free crochet pattern: The easiest poncho you'll ever make
Turkish Delight is a new Caron Cake colorway for fall 2017.

You crochet this poncho from the neck down, working in the round. To start, you make a loop of single crochet for the neckline. In the second round you switch to double crochet and create two points exactly opposite each other. Then you continue adding rounds, alternating two rounds of solid double crochet worked in back loop only, with three rounds of double crochet and chain-1 spaces, and always increasing at the points.

When making the loop for the neckline, instead of the traditional two-step process of chaining and then working the single crochet, I prefer to use foundation single crochet, which is done in a single step. Foundation stitches are especially useful when you need to crochet your foundation row to a specific length, as with the neckline of this poncho, and I use them whenever possible.

Feel free to use whatever method is most comfortable to you for the neckline, but if you’re interested in learning more about foundation stitches, you can watch my quick tutorial video:

    Like

    1. Nina Avatar

      Bettina – I received your photo and it does seem to be curling too much. The way the stitch count works is this: the first round, your starting loop, should have a number of single crochet that is a multiple of 4 (this is stated clearly in step 1). The poncho shown in my pattern had 88 sc in the starting loop. The second round, which is dc, increases by 1 dc at each point, for a total of 90 dc in that round. After that, each round increases by 4 dc at each point, or 8 per round, so your stitch count would be 98, 106, 114, etc. To be precise, that is counting the ch-1 spaces in the spaced rows as stitches, but not counting the ch-2 spaces at each point.

      Like

    2. Nina Avatar

      I’m concerned that you say you started with 90 stitches. For the pattern to work, the first round must be a multiple of 4, so you would want either 88 or 92, not 90.

      Hi Pat – no questions are silly. We were all novices once! For this pattern the chain does count as a stitch, and when you’re working a solid row on top of a spaced row, you do dc in the chains below. Hope this helps!

      Pat – you never yarn over to join any row, solid or spaced. What you may be seeing on the video is that on the spaced row, you end with a chain stitch before joining to the 3rd chain in the starting chain 4. Hope this helps!

    I’m really confused. In the beginning to form the neck, you chain 3 and it’s suppose to count as a stitch. If that counts as a D.C. How do you start with 88 and end up with 90 instead of 91? You don’t count the chain 3? I love your pattern and thank you for taking the time to show us.

    1. Nina Avatar

      Linda – In this pattern the chain 3 always counts as a DC. After forming your neckline of 88 SC, chain 3 and then continue as follows:
      – In same st, immediately after chain 3: work 1 DC, chain 1, 1 DC again (this is your back point). Counting your chain 3, you now have 3 DC total.
      – Work a DC in each of next 43 st. You now have 46 DC total.
      – In same st (exactly opposite back point) work 1 DC, chain 1, 1 DC again (this is your front point. You now have 48 DC total.
      Work a DC in each of next 42 st. This should bring you up to your starting chain 3, which counts as your 43rd DC on this side. Join with slip stitch in 3rd chain. You now have 90 DC total, counting chain 3.

    I think I’m having the same problem, or at least a similar one, as Linda. No matter what I do, if I count the chain 3 as a double crochet, I have an extra stitch between my points.
    Using smaller numbers as an example, like in your video… suppose you have a neckline of 20sc. Chain 3, then the first point will be in stitch #1. So, the other point will be in stitch #11, right? So, after your first ch-1 space, you have a dc in stitches 1-11, for a total of 11 (an odd number, like it should be). Then, after the second ch-1 space, you have a dc in stitches 11-20, plus the ch3, plus the other dc in stitch #1 on this side of the point, for a total of 12. Does this make sense? I have tried this over and over and cannot get it to come out right! I appreciate any help you can give me. This is a lovely poncho, and I think if I can get past this one difficulty, it will go together easily.

    What am i doing wrong? I have measured my neck line as indicated and crochet according to the pattern. My concern however is that when i fit the neck in laying flat against my body but the further i crochet its not laying flat against my body. I have increase the number of stiches at the neck but it just gets worst.

      Lilian – it’s hard to tell what’s going on without seeing a photo of your work. If you send one to spoonsandhooks@gmail.com I’ll be happy to take a look at it.

      I am so glad you asked about this, because I have the same problem. Ordinarily, when you wear a poncho, the neckline lays down. Our problem here is that the further we crochet, the neckline stands up rather than laying flat. I, too, have been trying to make it with a DK yarn (LB Mandala), and I have tried with a 4mm, 4.5mm and 5mm hooks to try and remedy this problem

        Carrie – it may be an issue of your tension being too tight.

    Maybe someone can help. I have followed the instructions carefully and have started 4x. I cannot get the poncho to increase. It has looked more like a tube top than flaring out. I’m not sure why it doesn’t increase even though I do the increase at every point as explained. Any ideas? The first two solid round look fine but once I add the spaced rounds I get a tube not a flared poncho.

      Laura – It’s difficult to say without seeing photos, but it sounds like you’re somehow losing stitches in the spaced rounds. For each round after round 2, both solid and spaced, the total number of stitches should increase by 8.

    I’ve made this pattern twice. The first time was as instructed and the result was great. I made it to wear while we were caravanning last year. When it got colder, I crocheted an extra poncho in another yarn, attached it inside the original to make it more cosy.
    I’ve just finished making it again and totally changed the look by doing DC in the back of the stitch for every row. I used Lion Brand Heartland (5 balls). I also added a lacy border and did a few rows or double crochet at the neck to make it fit more snuggly. It looks great. I can send you a photo if you like.

    Hi there, I am just finishing up my second poncho, thanks for the lovely pattern 🙂. This one my join is not very discrete, and I wonder would it work made in the round with no joining chain?

      Hi Kate – I’m not clear what you’re asking. Do you mean to work continuously in the round? I’ve never tried that, but it might work.

    Ty for such an easy pattern using the Caron cake yarn! It’s cheap, easy, and looks gorgeous! I’ll be making another one using a different yarn. Both are gifts. Seems like all I do is make things for other people anymore. But I love that they love what I make, and I love making it.
