Hooded Poncho: Premium Crochet Pattern


Happy Sunday! Meet the Hooded Poncho crochet pattern!

This design was inspired by another poncho pattern that I had favorited on Ravelry but never took a moment to add to my library and my desire to be warm. Of course, when I was finally ready to make my own poncho after scoring some awesome super bulky yarn on clearance, the pattern was no longer available! I was bummed for a little bit, but then I realized I could make my own, so the Hooded Poncho was born.

During the winter, I tend to feel cold and have cold hands. I dislike being cold so much, I left Chicago after four winters. I just could not stand the below zero temperatures and the wind off of Lake Michigan any longer. Now that I live in the southeastern United States, the winter is milder, but it has it’s really cold days and random ice storms with a dusting of snow.

The Hooded Poncho is perfect for those chilly days to be paired with a long sleeve top and some gloves to keep you stylish with the comfort of being wrapped in a squishy blanket. This is also great for the person who does not like a traditional winter coat, or the warm natured person that wears a coat out of practical reasons during the coldest days. And since Punxsutawney Phil said we would have six more weeks of winter and it was snowing in the western part of North Carolina this week, the timing is perfect.

I used an easy stitch pattern that creates texture and visual appeal of an intermediate level, but it’s easy enough for an advanced beginner.

  • This poncho is started with foundation double crochet. If you prefer to start with a chain, create a chain length per pattern row 1 + 2, and then dc across in each stitch.
  • The poncho is made in one piece starting with the right side.
  • This item can be made smaller or larger by adding fewer or more rows for the width
  • Due to the stitch pattern, it is helpful to use a row counter or some means or tracking completed rows to ensure correct size.
