Inspired by a short kimono jacket style with flaring sleeves the poncho is actually very easy to make and is designed to hang just below your trouser waist band (though you can just add more rows if you prefer a longer cover up) making it adaptable for wearing.

It’s worked in the round using two strands of double knit (8ply) together with a 7mm (US size K or L) hook so it works up fast.

I made mine in burgandy and gold but there are so many colour options you could try from bold block colours to changing colours every couple of rows. Super versatility!

This is an ‘easy’ rated pattern; suitable for advanced beginners looking to learn some new crochet techniques. Pattern is written in UK and US terms and includes explanations of all stitches and abbreviations.
