Circular Poncho - free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Circular Poncho
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This Circular Poncho has been an idea in my head for months and months. I finally got around to creating it and I love it! It’s shorter in the front so you can use your arms without having to find them, and longer in the back to keep you warm and in style! Speaking of warm, there is a ribbed turtleneck on the poncho to keep the chill away. The off-set style creates an eye-catching design in the back as well. All your friends are going to want one in their favorite colors!

    Wow, this is so beautiful! I love your written pattern! I am so happy you shared this one that I so want to make. I really like the neck part, I’m thinking of making mine a little larger so it wont be so tight. Thank you so much for sharing this free pattern. I have saved your page!

      You didn’t do anything wrong, I forgot to change the count when I changed the neck round.
