I crocheted this poncho last summer and the working name was ‘ poncho with dots’ all along.

The pattern was almost ready so she had to get a name, but I couldn’t find anything suitable.

Until the season started and we could go to the boat again.
I forgot how peaceful it feels of being on the water
I stared at the clear water and marveled at how relaxed it could be to just watch jellyfish.
I try to film it with my phone, but that didn’t cover it at all.
It is the whole picture, the combination of the sun, the rippling water, the breeze, and the many jellyfish that are playing so wonderfully with the current.

This feeling summed up exactly what I also felt when I hooked this poncho a year earlier.
A wonderfully relaxed feeling, airy, everything is allowed and nothing is necessary, a bit of play.
And that is why this poncho called Little Jellyfish.

With just 1 ball of Scheepjes Whirl, you get a short poncho that you can wear in 2 or actually 3 ways.
Straight as in the photo above, and like a ‘traditional’ poncho with the point in the front.
In the top photo, I wear it asymmetrically, that’s how I like it the most.
This poncho is one-size-fits-all, but if you want it larger, the pattern is easy to repeat.
You can use a matching ball of Scheepjes Whirlette for this.

I think this poncho is for many people.
As I wear it in the photo, it is really an eye-catcher on a simple black dress.
But it will also look great on a pair of jeans.
Moreover, it is an extra layer when it is a bit cooler.

I used the technique filet crochet for this poncho.
You can make all kinds of items with this technique, like clothing, curtains and blankets.
The alternation of double crochets and chain stitches allows you to create fun patterns, which makes it fun to look at but also interesting to crochet!

The pattern of this poncho consists of a written pattern with an additional scheme.
The written text should be more useful for the beginners, while the more experienced crocheter will benefit more from the chart.
I crocheted this poncho with crochet hook 3.5.

I hope you enjoy crocheting this poncho as much as I did!
