As I was writing last week’s post I started crocheting a little poncho for my husband secretary daughter whom will be turning 2 soon. Can you believe it? It feels like yesterday that she was born, check this post.
I found this quick and easy crochet poncho pattern from a blog “Le Monde de Sucrette”. It’s a really easy pattern and it crocheted up in no time. Using various colours from the Special and Wonder Soft double knit yarns from Stylecraft that I found in my stash.
Using a 4mm ( 8UK / US6) crochet hook, using my first colour, I started with 72 chain, the head I was crocheting for measures 45cm (18”), with 8 of 3 set double crochet on either side of the 6 set corner cluster. I crochet 26 rows including my base and border row. For the border I crochet 5 double crochet in the chain and 1 slip stitch in to the middle chain of the 3 set double crochet to form the loopy border and 8 double crochet in the 2 corner cluster.
Crocheting is so confusing what means one thing on this side of the world is something different on the other side of the world. Women, we can never make up our minds or maybe we want to make sure we always use our brains!? In the pattern she uses tr (treble stitch) UK, I know it as a dc (double crochet) US.
