This crocheted poncho is rustic, warm and sexy - a unique combination that will have you looking great and feeling cozy as the weather begins to chill. The poncho looks great as a casual statement over a simple sweater with boot-cut jeans, yet would also work with a suede skirt and knee-high boots for a dressier look. It works up fast using heavy worsted yarn and is crocheted in the round from the top down, in order to provide optimum fit and almost zero finishing. Employed is an interesting and simple technique for weaving separate strands of yarn into the fabric while the poncho is being worked. So go ahead! Grab yourself some yarn, a hook and settle down by the fire with a friend or with a few of your favorite movies. You’ll not only have fun, but you will quickly end up with a poncho that expresses that eternal free spirit within.
