Crocheted Baby Poncho

Posted on September 11, 2010

Blue Baby Poncho
Check out this cute baby poncho project I recently crocheted. This pattern is fantastic and works up so quickly with no seams to sew when you finish. Aggie May’s free poncho pattern makes about a 2T child’s size poncho using a G (4.25 mm) crochet hook. You could add additional stitches in your beginning row to make a larger size.

My poncho has 16 rows before the trim and it’s 16″ long at center from the top. 19″ across the top of shoulders. In case you are wondering, the yarn is some 100% mercerized cotton I found at my local thrift store. I used about 350 yards of the cotton to crochet the poncho.

Poncho Closeup

Click to supersize the closeup photo above. I crocheted around the neckline to create eyelets for a drawstring closure. I worked a SC and chain 2 in each stitch around the neck opening. I then just made a long chain and threaded it through the eyelets to complete my drawstring. And that’s it — The poncho is finished!

    This is cute. I like it and because it’s cotton it’s easily washed and dried.
