"This poncho pattern is great for beginners as there is no edging at the neck or bottom. I love the simplicity of the finish. Adding the fringe is also optional, but I just love fringes. Ponchos are so on trend right now. You can make the Herringbone Poncho with your choice of worsted weight yarn, either acrylic, wool or cotton, just look for the number (4) on the yarn label. This poncho is perfect for any season as it is meant for layering and creating your own look. To wear it in summer just pop it on over a t shirt, and in winter add it over a warm sweater for extra coziness."
NotesThis crochet pattern is written in US terms (more details).
All measurements given are unblocked.
Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours!
Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger (more details).
Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge (more details).
This pattern is written for 4 sizes.
