Desert Dreams Poncho

Challenge yourself and amaze your family and friends by creating a Desert Dreams Poncho.

Ideal for resort, beach or festivals, but also suited to shopping, hiking or relaxing.

The Desert Dreams Poncho is a piece of mandala fashion which features 2 mandalas of your choice - one on each the front and the back.

The first step is to ‘square off’ your mandalas, then you join them into one piece, work the sides and the hemlines, trim the hem and work your neck and you’re done!

Don’t get me wrong, though - this piece takes TIME. My testers took around 50 hours to complete their ponchos, but they’re so happy with the results!

Special Bonuses:

Purchase of this pattern INCLUDES:

  • An invitation (within the pattern) to my “CAL” Facebook Group - my testers and I are waiting to meet you, guide your yarn & mandala choices, and provide any assistance you may require.
  • A copy of my Full of Fans Mandala pattern (as used in my pictured red/teal version).

Yarn:
I’ve used 8ply (DK) cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills to make my sample ponchos, but any colors and summer yarns would be a good alternative.

Wool-blend yarns (even a ‘cake’ of some sort) would make a warmer alternative for the cooler months.

Special Stitches/Techniques (in addition to those required for your mandalas):

Chainless Starting stitches
Foundation stitches
Linked stitches
Crochet 2 or 5 together

~ Available in both US and UK terminology - both downloads available
~ Intermediate Level (foundation stitches are essential to the pattern)
