Any interest in one?  Child or adult size?

I'd love to participate! Either child or adult poncho's fine with me. Am I right that we'll all be doing the same pattern? This will be my first crochetalong, so sorry if that's a dumb question  Grin

ROFL, beats the heck out of me.  I was just reading the first crochetalong thread and saw a few people had mentioned interest in a crochetalong for a poncho... the only crochetalong that has been done so far is the convertible mitten/fingerless glove one, and I believe they all used the same pattern ~ just with their own variations as to yarn, size, whether to leave the flap, etc.  So if we followed their example, we'd all use the same basic pattern, but with our own touches. Make sense?

Yeah, a crochetalong entails everyone doing the same pattern and posting their results.

If you'd like to do another one, you could always start a new crochetalong.. Something simple would be nice, since I've been a "beginner" for the last year and a half... :|

I'm working on a poncho right now - it's from McCalls Crochet Treasury. It's basically 2 huge grannies joined w/some rows at the shoulders. I think it will be lovely. Will post it when I'm finished. The pattern is very simple and if I can make the time I'll post it, too.

heh... have fun!

http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/p  The wide wide world of poncho links...

This was a super quick and easy poncho that I did today ~ I need to make at least 2 more toddler/child sized ponchos so my girls will stop fighting over it now:


Toddler Poncho

Columbia-Minerva, "Big & Little Crochets" Leaflet 2519, 1970

Fits Sizes 4 to 10

MATERIALS:  Columbia-Minerva Knitting worsted  (4 oz pull skein) OR Nantuk 4-ply knitting yarn (2 or 4 oz pull skein): 4 ozs

"Boye" crochet hook size "I"

 
 
Gauge: 1 mesh and 1 sc to 1 inch

Starting at top ch 51.
Row 1: 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 dc in each of next 5 ch, * 2 dc in next ch, 1 dc in each of next 6 ch, repeat from 6 times more-54 dc. Join with a sl st to top of ch-3 at start. Do not turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, work * 1 dc in each of next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc, repeat from * 8 times more, work to end-63 dc, join.

Row 3: * Ch 3, skip 1 dc, 1 sc in next dc, repeat from * around, end ch 3, 1 sc in joining. Mark beg of rows.

Rows 4, 5, & 6: * Ch 4, 1 sc in next loop, repeat from * around.

Row 7: * (Ch 4, 1 sc in next loop) 15 times, ch 4, 1 sc in next sc for an inc, repeat from * once more.

Rows 8 through 20: Repeat Row 4. Fasten off. Crochet 1 row of sc on top edge.

Fringe: Cut four 16-inch strands. Fold in half and draw loop through mesh on last row then draw ends through loop and tighten. Repeat fringe in every mesh.

*************  Note: I found that chaining 51 did not give me a good sized neck no matter which yarn or needle I tried (Tried up to a K), so I increased it to 58.

I missed the crochetalong for this, and probably won't get to making one for another month (other projects have got to be completed!!!) but I AM GOING TO MAKE This!!

my question? Can I use another bulky yarn? Like a Lionbrand chunky yarn?  just wondering since my yarn options are limited here.
