How to Crochet Tutorial: Patchouli Poncho

How to Crochet Tutorial: Patchouli Poncho

There are a variety of fiber textures that I used to create this eclectic boho-inspired poncho! I decided to create this free-flowing Patchouli Poncho that just begs you to get outdoors on a beautiful day and feel the sunshine pour down upon you! I used my Sublime Light Granny Square from the 365 Days of Granny Squares for the border design, and it was just the right touch for this avant-garde piece! This project is coming to you just in time for the holidays! Get ready to make one for yourself or for someone you love!

Crochet Tutorial: The Pizzazz Poncho

Do you have a lot of scrap yarn? I am overrun by baskets of scraps left over from previous projects, and I often try to find fun and useful projects to use them.  When you wear this, it will make you spin, dance, and walk with spring in your step, because it is *that* much fun to wear! Here are a few photos of my poncho and how I wore it. I matched it with jeggings and riders with a man’s denim shirt and a matching headscarf.

Pizzazz Poncho
Comfortable and cozy, I am ready to go out on the town for the day! Bold! Colorful! Wild! The Pizzazz Poncho is all that and a bag of chips!!! I made this creation inspired by a photo I saw made by another crochet artist, but I added a bit of my own artistic spin!
Pizzazz Poncho
This Pizzazz Poncho is the perfect project to make good use out of scraps. This colorful poncho is extremely versatile. With it’s array of color and texture you can pair this with any outfit to dress up or dress down.
