Summer Crochet Poncho – Free Pattern, Video Tutorial and PDF!

Are you ready to start making some Spring and Summer Crochet garments?
Here is a quick and easy, (it took me about 2 hours), Summer weight poncho to make!  I have provided 3 sizes, and since this is a very roomy garment, that should be great for everyone, no matter the size!  Plus size will be fine with the largest size.  But this pattern is so easy to check after the first row, to see if it is wide enough!  So happy crocheting everyone!
