Light Poncho

(Crochet * Stash-buster)




A lacy poncho, made with light weight cotton.
Un poncho calado, hecho con algodón liviano.




Colors: 2 greens, dusty brown, mauve purple, light blue, linen, beige and yellow.
Colores: 2 verdes, lila, café, celeste, lino, beige y amarillo. 




For a more structured neckline, I used front and back post stitches.
Para darle más estructura al cuello, lo hice en punto de resorte.



This project was a kind of experiment.  I started using a pattern for a lacy edge form a crochet book.  But I made so many changes, it is impossible to share how I did it.  I almost gave up midway, but I am glad it worked out at the end…and I love my new lacy poncho.   

Este proyecto fue una especie de experimento.  Comencé basándome en el patrón de un borde calado.  Pero fue haciéndole muchos cambios en el camino, al punto que pensé que no funcionaría, pero al final salió bien…y ahora estoy muy contenta con mi nuevo poncho calado.

  6. It's lovely - those post stitches really give a nice look to the neckline and balance out the lacy body. :)

  19. Hi Ana,
    My daughter has asked me to crochet her a poncho and looking around in YouTube there is nothing that really tickles my fancy. But yours, my oh my, what a beauty!! Your colour combo is as always fabulous. I understand you don't have a pattern for it but just to get me started, a few questions if i may? Do you start from the top down? Are you working in the round or flat and joining at the end? Do you increase every row, 2 rows? Your help would be greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks Ana. Regards, Corinne
