You know what I love the most about ponchos? Much like a hoodie, you simply throw it on and out the door you go! Except ponchos have class – at least this poncho does! 😉 Ponchos are acceptable attire for some light, solo shopping at Target, or to wear to a family dinner at a nice restaurant. Let’s whip up a GORGEOUS “Head Honcho Poncho” with this NEW poncho crochet pattern!
Head Honcho Poncho Pattern
This poncho is worked as two mirrored squares – with one corner cut off. This corner will be the neck opening when finished, and provides a gorgeous shaping and drape. This is a simple, straight-forward pattern that I just know you will love!
This pattern uses front post/back post crochet stitches. See a written and video tutorial for this stitch here. If you have not worked these stitches yet, I promise you’ll be a pro by the time you’re done! And that gorgeous drape! Ahhh! ♥
I designed the Head Honcho Poncho with the cold Kansas winter wind in mind. Did you know that Kansas is one of the windiest places in North America? More so than the “Windy City” of Chicago, believe it or not! To ward off the chill, I added on an optional over-sized collar to this poncho pattern. I also love it without the collar, and of course that decreases the yardage needed. So chic!
This pattern includes both One Size and Plus Size. The One Size fits up to about size 16.
*Note that in the Bangkok version (blue/green) pictured, I did NOT add the finishing row to the neck. I almost like it better this way, so if you decide to omit the collar as well, definitely try yours on before adding that last finishing row. I love this so much!
I love how the rows go one direction, while the columns go the opposite. My son mentioned that this almost creates an optical illusion, and I think he’s right!
