Crochet The Natalia Poncho
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing to you a new project. It’s a tutorial on how to crochet The Natalia Poncho.
This project is super feminine and easy to crochet. If you are a beginner, you can crochet this project. It may seem a little complex at first, but it is just a simple repeat of two rows.

Crochet The Natalia Poncho: a lacy and intricate design made simple
The Natalia Poncho is the perfect Summer accessory. It is lacy and light, as well as very feminine. This design comes in a wide range of sizes from S to XL. It can even be custom made as I will be giving you the exact multiple of chains you need for the pattern repeat.
I used a very vintage type of pattern for this project. It is the fans and treillis stitch pattern which is so intricate, yet very simple. The best part about this crochet poncho is that it is super simple!
This pattern repeat is intricate and lacy, creating the perfect crochet garment. Although it looks complex, it isn’t! It is a simple repeat of only two rows over and over again.
I have already used this pattern repeat for my Regency Era Wrap. You can find the free pattern and video tutorial for this here: Crochet The Regency Era Wrap

Fasten off, leaving long tail for sewing.
To sew your poncho together:
Place one rectangle lengthwise, and the other one widthwise so as to form an L shape. The longer side of your 1st rectangle should match up to the smaller side of your second rectangle.
Sew this length together using your tapestry needle and long tail. Attach a new piece of yarn to one corner of the project if you cannot use your tail.
Once this stage is completed, place the other ends of your rectangles in such a way that the long side of one rectangle matches up with the longer side of the other rectangle. This should close up your pattern together. You can now sew this side up too.
If you need more help with this stage of the pattern, please refer to my in depth video tutorial. This video tutorial is available on my Youtube channel. The link to it can be found on my blog post for this project.
Fasten on yarn. Ch 1, and place SC all along the neck edging at equal intervals. Make sure you do not place too many, as it is better to have a “tighter” neck edging. Sl st to first ch 1, fasten off.
Tidy up all loose ends.
