While browsing the RAKJPatterns Blog, I found a free crochet pattern for a toddler poncho!! If you are in the Yartist Facebook group you already know that I had been searching for an adorable poncho pattern for a while now. There are 3 things I love about this pattern right away. 1- simplicity! You all know I love simple patterns/easy to follow. 2- Adjustable! Just by starting with more or less chains and making more or less rows… you can make all the sizes you wish… its that easy! 3- Its adorable! Only the cutest for my daughter!
While following her pattern, I crocheted rows 1-11 and then I repeated rows 4-7 one more time before continuing to the last row (row 12). I also not only trimmed the bottom, but also the top. I changed colors at the end of each row. But if you do not want to take the time to weave in your ends.. changing colors is an option. I find that I dread weaving in my ends so much through out my projects, but once it comes time to do it… it really doesn’t take that long. It can be so rewarding to go ahead and make the color changes!
