Ribbon Poncho

Lion Brand® Incredible®


8 double crochet + 6 rows = 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


Chain 34.

Row 1 1 double crochet in 3rd chain from hook and in each chain across – 31 double crochet. Chain 3, turn.

Row 2 Skip first double crochet, 1 double crochet in each double crochet and in turning chain. Chain 3 turn.

Repeat Row 2 until piece measures 55 inches. Fasten off. Weave in ends.


Fold piece in half widthwise (16 inches x 27˝ inches). Sew 16 inches seam along top of one long side of piece, from end toward fold, leaving remainder of edge open to form neck opening of Poncho.


(Note Fringes on this Poncho are in 3 small groups and are at uneven lengths.)

Neck Fringe

Cut 2 pieces of ribbon 24 inches long. Attach at inside end of 16 inches seam (neck opening), one at a time, by folding each piece in half and using crochet hook to draw through fabric to form a loop, then draw ends through loop and pull gently to snug up against surface of Poncho. Trim so strands measure between 9 inches and 12 inches.

Back Point Fringe

Cut 2 pieces of ribbon 24 inches. Attach at back point as for Neck Fringe. Trim so strands measure between 9 inches and 12 inches.

Left Side Fringe

Cut 2 pieces of ribbon 22 inches long. Attach on Left Front of Poncho, approximately 17 inches up left side from front point. Trim so that strands measure between 8 inches and 10 inches. Cut 2 more pieces 22 inches long and attach 1 inches above last 2 strands. Trim to between 8 inches and 10 inches.
