Happy September! Brenna from @BrennaAnnHandmade here, with another FREE DIY crochet pattern made in collaboration with HobiumYarns! (Just in time for Fall!) 🙂
The “Autumn Fringe Poncho” was created using HobiumYarns lovely “YarnArt Jeans Plus” which is a cotton blend that is perfect for creating garments that can transition from late summer to autumn, and has just the right amount of “drape” when crocheted. (not too stiff & not too loose 😉 )
Are you ready to get started? Great! Let’s go! 😉
*Finished Tee measures 29″ x 19″ laying flat* (not including fringe)
*Pattern as written fits a women’s size small/medium*
*To adjust the size:
-Add or decrease width by altering the base pattern row count as follows: 1 row = 3/4″
-Add or decrease length by altering the base pattern stitch count as follows: 3 stitches = 1″
(Don’t forget to purchase more yarn if sizing up! 😉 )
A tape measure
ch = chain
st = stitch
dc = double crochet
Row 1: Make a slip knot, and ch 100. Then, put 1 dc into the 3rd ch from hook, and in each st across.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn. Skip the 1st st, and put 1 dc into the next st, and in each st across. (Don’t forget that last dc of the row! 😉
Rows 3-22: Repeat row 2. Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing.
(Seaming the Poncho)
Step 1: Lay the 2 pieces you just crocheted on top of each other as pictured, and thread the tapestry needle with the long tail. Next, sew each side the top of the poncho in 11″ (29 st) from the outside-in, leaving a 17″ neck hole open in the middle. Then knot, weave in ends, and cut the excess yarn.
Step 2: Next, fold the pieces width-wise as shown. Sew up each side of the tee, 6″ up from the bottom, (6 st) leaving the arm holes open.
(Adding the Fringe)
Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of yarn 12″ long.
Attach with the crochet hook to the corner of one of the bottom stitches of the poncho as shown.
Step 2: Repeat step 1 around the entire bottom edge of the poncho, by adding 2 pieces of fringe to every stitch.
Now, just weave in all ends of the poncho & trim.
Ta da! You’re all finished! 🙂
