Garden Poncho - Free Crochet Pattern


The Garden Poncho is here and I am thrilled to finally be sharing this free crochet pattern with you all. The Garden Poncho uses Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK in Washed Teal, a beautiful shade of blue and gorgeous fiber you won’t want to stop working with.

The best part about the Garden Poncho? This pattern uses just two simple rectangle shapes that are seamed together in a unique fashion to create this gorgeous, light weight Poncho. Don’t let the shaping and stitch definition scare you, a beginner could easily complete this pattern in no time!


The delicate look of the Garden Poncho pairs wonderfully with a legging or skinny jean. Do to how bright the yarn I chose to use was, I think my Garden Poncho looks best with white!
