This poncho was originally designed for submission consideration to Happily Hooked Magazine, which had an issue that featured Cake Yarn. Upon completing the poncho, the editor asked if it could be used in the March’s Issue 42 of the Pattern Pack Pro Magazine, which featured Ponchos!

Originally with the theme of Cake Yarn, I wanted to pair it with the corner to corner technique, but I wanted to design something that wasn’t the very popular blanket and scarf you see everywhere. My out of the box thinking led me to this one size fits all poncho.

Now, using Caron Cakes, the colors are quite loud, and the panels don’t really add up, but picture this with your favorite pair of blue jeans, or styled like a v-neck with a solid color, like black shirt and pants.

I left my sides open, but you can add buttons along the inside sides, and use the space in between the boxes as button holes, or you can leave armholes, and stitch the rest closed for an oversized top.

Materials:

  • 1,532 Yards of Worsted Weight Yarn - I used Caron’s Cakes in the Banana Bread colorway from Michaels
  • I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle for Weaving and Sewing

Time Spent:
Each panel takes just under 5 hours. I worked my poncho in several seatings for a total of about 10 and a half hours.

Measurements:
One Size

Abbreviations:
- DC - Double Crochet
