1-2-3 Poncho-Shawl crochet - JoAnn Sampson
My daughter is 30 PLUS yrs old now, as has grown up wearing these poncho's as have all my Granddaughters.
These can be made for newborns up to XXXL if wanted, it depends on you and how big you want them (different size yarn & Hooks makes all the difference).
They are great with matching hats as well.
By not sewing (whip-stitch) up the front you can have a wonderful shawl, whip st up the front creates a poncho with a nice collar. Add fringe to set the accent on the bottom of this shawl/Poncho or scallops. You decide.
I pray you enjoy this wonderful Classic as we have over the years. ( Mom started making these back in the "early 1970's", and here it is the end of 2010 and I'm pleased to share this with you)
1, 2, 3 Shawl/Poncho
(1 sc, 2 ch's, & 3 Dc's - all worked in ch 2 space from previous row)
For adult size: J hook
Ch 5, skip firts 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, ch 5 turn.Spip first 2 ch's, 1 dc in next dc, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc's, (sc in ch 2 sp of previous row, ch 2, 3 dc all in same space), **ch 5 turn, skip first 2 ch's, work 1 dc in each of next 3 ch's, sc in ch 2 space from previous row, ch 2, 3 dc (ALL in the same space), sc in next ch 2 space, ch 2, 3 dc in same space ** Repeat to end of row
CONTINUE working this pattern until desired length, then you can finish off leaving enough yarn to whip stitch up the front or just finish off.
Great with fringe or scallops
This makes a Beautiful gift for newborns with matching hats & booties
Just use baby yarn or sports yarn with a size F or G hook (I like a G Hook) I don't add fringe for these, I use dainty scallops
