Purple Plaid Poncho
Created By: Connie Haney
Pattern Source: other:

I've made 2 panels 17" wide by 26" long and seamed them together to make a poncho. The body of the poncho is all crochet. I also picked up stitches around the neck opening and knit a 2 by 2 ribbing for about an inch and then I added a k1 to the k2 to make a k3, p2 ribbing for another inch before binding off in rib. I also added a 3 stitch i-cord in the darker purple about 27" long and I weaved it in and out of the seam area on the front and back of the poncho. The ch 3 at the beginning of each row makes holes along the edge making it perfect for weaving this i-cord in. You could also use ribbon. I let this i-cord hang out at the bottom the same length as the fringe and then at the top I also pulled it through the collar which not only makes it a design element but it also keeps the collar folded down. I have a video tutorial showing how to accomplish this design on my blog here...
