We’ve revised and reinterpreted the pattern that introduced a new generation of crocheters to the beauty of Tunisian Crochet: our popular Asymmetric Poncho.
Our new version replaces the shoulder seam with a shawl pin and provides new ideas for wearing this versatile design. This light and airy garment is the perfect “barely-there-layer” for warmer weather and looks great over clothing or as a cover-up at the beach.
There are 3 key components to the Asymmetric Redux: a large Tunisian Crochet hook, gorgeous yarn and basic Tunisian Crochet stitches. The result is a garment that looks woven, has luxurious drape and works up in a snap thanks to the hefty hook.
For warmer weather and evenings: Similar to the Anthropologie and Murielle ponchos, this poncho is the perfect "barely-there layer" for summer. This poncho looks great with jeans and a skimpy tank top or as a cover-up at the beach.
For cold weather: Wear this poncho with a pair of boots and skirt or jeans for a warm and wonderful way to look good when the weather turns chilly.
No matter which yarn you use to work it, the poncho has a sensuous feel, a luxurious drape and looks woven instead of crocheted due to usage of Tunisian (Afghan) crochet techniques and a very large hook. Best of all, the poncho is SUPER EASY to make, you can finish the poncho in a single weekend!
