Welcome to the Clement Canyon Poncho Crochet-Along. I am thrilled to be crocheting again. It has such a satisfying rhythm to it, and it’s so forgiving!
If you are a new crocheter, this project will help you learn new skills to help develop your new-found talent. If you are an experienced crocheter, you will be happy to see this fresh take on the crocheted poncho.
I love this pattern for 3 essential reasons:
If you decide to go with one of the kits we have put together, I have labeled each color with a corresponding letter. The choice is ultimately up to you, but typically I chose the lightest and darkest colors as the single skein option and the 3 other colors as the double skein option. There is room for playing within the two categories, but I will share here what I would do if I chose that kit.
THE PANTONE: A) Rose B) Denim C) Sky D) Silver E) Charcoal (I’m crocheting this one!)
THE NEUTRAL: A) Café au Lait B) Camel C) Ecru D) Taupe E) Black
THE KRISTY: A) Denim B) Jade C) Ecru D) Camel E) Magenta
I want to recommend my very favorite crochet hooks of all time here. The Clover Soft Touch is my very favorite hook. I usually do handwork for long stretches of time, and this hook allows for the most comfort and coordination while I bingewatch Netflix. Forget Netflix and Chill, I’m all about Netflix and Crochet!
You will most likely need one in a size G for this project. I usually highly recommend gauge swatching before starting any garment, but this is a poncho, so it could be more forgiving if it is slightly bigger or slightly smaller in the end. I chose to gauge (of course!)
