Crochet Child's Poncho | Fashion



I made these for my two nieces who are 10 and 4 years old. It’s a really easy pattern with a granny square type repetition. I modified this pattern from Hook, Yarn, and Needles the Old Stuff. The link is no longer working.

The PDF version of this pattern is available on Ravelry and Etsy. Thank you in advance for your contribution to my site!

Size H 5mm Crochet Hook

Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

sl st – slip stitch

Keep repeating row 5 until desired length.

*Notes: I can fit both of these ponchos over my head, the smaller one is a bit confining for my taste but is not too tight so if you want to make it bigger you would just continue the rows until the length was good. I personally would go with a bit bigger size around the neck.
