My First Poncho

Mi Primer Poncho
(Crochet * Stash-Buster)

For a long time I have been dreaming of making a poncho…and I finally did…
Desde hace tiempo he deseado hacerme un poncho…y finalmente lo hice… 

The Stash-BustingChallenge pushed me to take the step and make my first poncho.  The funny thing is that I could not stop at one, but made two…one in blue tones and the other one in neutrals (which I will show you on the next post…)
El Reto me ha dado el empujón que necesitaba para hacer mi primer poncho.  Lo gracioso es que no sólo hice uno…sino dos: uno en tonos azules, y el otro en neutrales (el cual les mostraré en la próxima entrada…) 

Colors: Navy Blue, teal, turquoise, aqua, light blue, white, light and dark grey.
Colores: turquesa, aqua, azul verdoso, azul marino, celeste, blanco, gris claro y oscuro.

A perfect Stash-Buster, using small amounts of each color.
Un proyecto perfecto para usar las lanas acumuladas, ya que se usa poca cantidad de cada color.

All worsted yarn. Hook: 4.5mm
Todas las lanas son medianas. Gancho: 4.5 mm.   

Pattern (Patrón) @ Le Monde de Sucrette: Poncho

[Note: In the increase part, I made 2 chains instead of one that the pattern calls for.  I also made a little change at the neck part, making a rib effect with Front & Back post sts.]. 
[Nota: En la parte del aumento, lo hice con dos cadenas en lugar de una.  También hice una pequeña variación en el cuello, dandole un efecto de resorte].

I will show you more photos of my second poncho (in neutral tones) in the next post..
Les mostraré más fotos de mi segundo poncho (con tonos neutrales) en la próxima entrada...


  1. Ana que lindo poncho!! como me gustaria aprender a hacer uno pero no me animo, admiro a las que saben tejer tan bien!!! te felicito!

  2. Me gusta mucho, de hecho está dentro de mi lista de cosas pendientes. Me gusta cómo has combinado los colores.

  3. The ponchos are both really lovely! I like the border of the brown poncho most, it looks very interesting because of the change of the different rows, but your neck parts are pretty too! Congrats for doing this! Happy weekend to you and your family! Sabine.
