Gossamer Poncho Crochet Pattern – Free Pattern and Video Tutorial

More “big stitch crochet’ for you, using a large hook usually dictated to rug making! This free poncho or cape pattern is a 3-hour project.

I love this big stitch crochet as it is almost immediate gratification.  So quick to make, and repetition of 3 rows, which means no following the pattern instructions once you finish  the increase row! Great for T.V. watching and crocheting at the same time!  My perfect idea of combining work and relaxation! This pattern combines one strand of a multi-color yarn and one of solid.  I used unforgettable, you could use 2 strands of Red Heart yarn, and your poncho will work up even more quickly as the combined yarns will be more bulky than using one strand of Unforgettable.

  1. Small – Medium:  Working with 2 strands of yarn, chain 36, slip stitch to join, being careful not to

twist the chain.

Large – XLarge:  Working with 2 strands of yarn, chain 40, slip stitch to join, being careful not to

twist the chain.

  1. Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join. (S-M: 36; M-L: 40)
  1. Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch for this row only, single crochet in each

stitch around, slip stitch to join. ((S-M: 36; M-L: 40))

  1.   *Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around.  (36 loops formed for S-M; 40 loops

formed for M-L)

  1.  Slip stitch into the next chain 3 loop 2 times (2 slip stitch in the same loop to position into the

center of the chain 3 loop). Chain 1, single crochet in the same loop, * single crochet in the next loop,

repeat from * around, slip stitch to join in the first single crochet. (36; 40)

  1.  Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch for this row only, make 2 single crochet in each

stitch around, slip stitch to join. (72, 80)

 

  1. *Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around. (S-M: 72 loops around;  M-L: 80 loops)

 8. Slip stitch into the next chain 3 loop 2 times. Chain 1, single crochet in the same loop, * single crochet in

stitch around, slip stitch to join. (72, 80)

  1. Repeat step 7, 8, and 9 until the poncho is long enough after stretching (see blocking below).  If after

stretching, you would like it longer, simply repeat sequence of 7, 8, and 9.  This poncho ended with a

row of chain 3 loops (step 7),  then the fringe was added into the loops.

  1.   BLOCKING:Blocking can lengthen the poncho 6 to 8 inches!

This poncho achieves its best appearance when blocked.To block,

EITHER, saturate with water, place on a thick bath towel or blanket, stretch the length of the

poncho, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, pulling as hard as you can to open up the rows of single crochet.

(They will take on a ‘broomstick lace’ type of long stitches.)

OR:

Place on an ironing board, steam the poncho, (steam by placing the iron slightly above the poncho, and

applying heavy steam), then stretch the length as much as possible.

 

FRINGE:  Wrap yarn around a 6 inch piece of cardboard.  Cut across the bottom loops to make

12 inch long lengths of yarn.  Fold 5 strands in half, insert the fold through a loop on the

bottom of the poncho, then pull the ends through the loop, pull to tighten and form a fringe.

Fringe was added in every 2nd loop in this design.

 

OPTIONAL: Chain a cord of approx. 40 inches, pass through the neck opening of the poncho.

Add tassels to the ends of the cord.

 

HOW TO MAKE A TASSEL:
