Join Kirsten Holloway and Furls Crochet for their November CAL. This month we are making the Frosted Petals Poncho. See below for dates. The Frosted Petals Poncho is a gorgeously textured design that uses the linen stitch in the main body. It’s bordered by a lace flower stitch that creates a soft hue and elegant finish. This poncho would be a great addition to any wardrobe fitting sizes small through 5x.

Additional Notes

The poncho is made in two rectangular panels which are about half linen stitch and half flower lace. Panels are seamed at the top of the linen section to create the neck opening.

This pattern is meant to be as adjustable as you need it. It is written with extended widths by adding enough stitches for one more flower in the lace for each size.

It is intended to have the linen stitch section cover the depth of your bust, followed by the flower lace stopping at your hips. You are free to add or remove rows of either section if you prefer more or less coverage for that area. For example, women with larger busts might need more rows of linen stitch. Women with longer waists might need more flower lace, versus short-waisted women not needed as much lace length. I want you to feel like this is your poncho, so have fun with it!

Ch-1 at beginning of row does count as a stitch when working linen stitch section.

Ch-1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch when working lace section.
