Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé - Fun Fur®


9 double crochets = 4 inches [10 cm]

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


The materials list and pattern are written to reflect the smallest size, with changes for larger sizes indicated in brackets. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow the pattern more easily, circle all numbers pertaining to your size before beginning to crochet or knit.



Chain 26 [31, 36].

Foundation Row

Double crochet in 4th chain from hook and in each chain across; turn – 24 [29, 34] double crochets.

Row 1

Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), double crochet in each double crochet across; turn.

Repeat Row 1 until piece measures 22 (25, 28) inches from beginning. Fasten off. Weave in ends.


Place marker on long side of first piece, 11 (12½, 15) inches from one end.
Sew end of second piece to side of first piece between corner and marker.
Sew end of first piece to side of second piece (matching A to A and B to B as shown on schematic).


With Fun Fur, work 1 row of double crochet evenly spaced along bottom and neck edges of poncho.

Fun Fur Trimmed Poncho Reviewed by Kathy Prendergast on 2013-05-15 ****
I made this for my niece when she was 5; she loved it so much she still has it now at age 12 even though it doesn't fit anyore, and she refuses to hand it down to her younger cousin! Very easy pattern; I don't care for the fur trim but she wanted it so I compromised by putting it only around the neck. Pity the Lion Boucle yarn isn't available anymore; it was a lot of fun to work with.
