Lacey Trellis Poncho (Spiral Version)

Crafts December 3, 2016

Does the idea of crocheting your own wardrobe additions seem intimidating? It doesn’t have to be. With this in-the-round poncho comprised of simple crochet stitches, you could have a new, stylish piece in your closet in no time.

You’ll need two skeins of Red Heart Love yarn (black is a solid choice but you could branch out into jewel tones, earth tones, or even pastels), a size “K” hook, scissors, and a tapestry needle. There are alternate instructions if you choose to use a different type of yarn or another size hook, as the pattern was created for sizes L-XL.

The only stitches you’ll need to know are chain (ch), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc) and half double crochet (hdc), although you’ll need to figure out how many chain stitches you’ll need to begin with (the pattern adds that it should be a multiple of 8 + 1). A chart is included with the pattern.

The finished product is a chic, simple piece that will go with anything from a t-shirt and jeans to a blouse and dress pants. With such an easy pattern, you may want to make two or three in different colors for those days when you want a splash of color to brighten up your outfit.

You can find the free pattern with chart and photos over at Twin Stitches.
