This poncho can be worn over any outfit and it looks beautiful

I have already created a few crochet ponchos in the past, such as The Natalia Poncho. I also crocheted The Summer Pink Poncho more recently. Both these crochet ponchos are beautiful and easy to crochet.

 The Aquamarine Poncho is slightly reminiscent of the eighties. Indeed, it features a slightly boxy oversized shape, and can be accessorized by a belt at the waist-just like in the 1980s! I love the feel of it so much.

Have you every used Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice yarn for your projects? I love this yarn and how it feels. It is perfect for accessories such as ponchos and shawls.

Example of top part of panel

Sewing both panels together:

Lay both identical panels on top of each other on a flat surface.

Sew first one side of the top shoulder part to the other with the help of your loose end and tapestry needle, using the mattress stitch.

Sew both sides of the top of the poncho

Once this part is securely stitched together, fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Now sew the other side of the top shoulder part as explained above. Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Create border around all the poncho:

Open up your poncho completely and lay it on a flat surface.

Fasten on yarn to any top corner stitch on the project.

Crochet a border all the way around the poncho

Round 1: Ch 1 (=SC), and place a SC all around each side of the project continuously, making sure you place them evenly along each side. Place 2 SC when you reach each corner (so place 2 SC into each of the 4 corners).Β 

Once you have gone all the way around, slip stitch to first ch 1 to finish round.

Round 2: Ch 1 (=SC), place a SC into BLO (=back loop only) of next SC from previous row until eor. Place 2 SC BLO when you reach each corner (so place 2 SC BLO into each of the 4 corners).Β 

Sl stitch to first ch 1 to close off round.

Round 3: Repeat round 2.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Finish off sewing your poncho together to create armholes:

Fold your poncho over so that both panels are lying symmetrically on top of one another.

Now with a measuring tape, measure 10” from the top of the side of the poncho. At 10”, place a stitch marker. This creates the armholes.

Crochet
Measure 10″ for armholes

Using the mattress stitch, sew from the very bottom side of the poncho to the stitch marker. Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.

Repeat this process on the other side of the poncho to create second armhole.

Neck edging:

Fasten on yarn to a stitch on one corner of the neck edging.

Ch 1 (=SC), place SC evenly all along the neck edging, until you reach the ch 1 from the beginning (there is no specific number of stitches needed here). Sl st through this ch 1 to finish off round.

Fasten off, tidy up all loose ends.
