At long last, I have finally found a great extremely easy crochet poncho pattern!
I've been wanting to make a poncho since the day I began crocheting, but every pattern looked crazy complicated and wasn't exactly appealing to the eye. Thankfully lionbrand yarns came through for me for this season. Check out the pattern I used here.
If you're interested in making this, I would definitely use the lion brand pattern, but if you want to recreate exactly what I've done above, you can use this altered pattern below.
Make a slip knot
Row 1: Half Double Crochet (hdc) in 3rd chain from the hook, and in each stitch across
Row 2: *chain 2, turn, hdc in each stitch across* repeat ** until piece measures 50 inches
Fold piece lengthwise bringing 1st row to meet last row
Beginning at top right hand corner, slip stitch side edges together for 13 inches
hdc around neck opening join with slip stitch at the beginning chain
*chain 2, hdc in each stitch around, join with slip sitch*
repeat ** until neck cowl measures 8 inches
