Here is my newest pattern, available on Craftsy, Etsy, and Ravelry. It looks like a poncho but it’s not! I find ponchos annoying – they are always getting in the way when I wear them and they make me look like a lollipop with fringe on two sticks. The Not-A-Poncho has sleeves and a waist with ties that you can tighten for a more fitted look or loosen for a more poncho look. And it is a great pattern for beginner crocheters, super easy and fast. It can easily be customized to make it shorter or longer, slightly less easier to make it narrower or wider. But since it is already very loose and oversized, it will work for a wide variety of shapes and sizes without making any changes.
Skills Needed: You should already know how to chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet and know which loop is the front and which is the back.
Materials: Worsted Weight Yarn, approx. 600-900 yards. Hooks H and J or size needed to get close to gauge.
