The yarn

The Caron Simply Soft yarn is very easy to work with. It is very soft and not too heavy which made it great to make this poncho!

The Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn is perfect for the trim. It finishes up the poncho nicely and gives it a very luxurious look and feel!

  1. Yarn: Medium weight / Worsted weight / CYC4 yarn and Faux Fur yarn. I used:
    • Caron Simply Soft yarn in colors:  Black – 10 oz / 300 g / 550 yards / 500 m (2 skeins), White – 8 oz / 225 g / 425 yards / 400 m (2 skeins), Grey Heather – 18 oz / 500 g / 900 y / 800 m (4 skeins)
    • Lion Brand Go For Faux yarn in color Black Panther – 8 yards / 7 m (1 skein)

  3. How to Bind Off
  4. Tunisian C2C Entrelac Tutorial
  5. Follow along video tutorial to make this poncho with me

Instructions

  1. I strongly recommend viewing the ‘follow along’ video tutorial mentioned in the Resources section before you start making the Poncho. It covers all the basics of making this poncho and it has some very useful tips too (it shows how the yarn can be carried in the back for diagonals with alternating colors so you won’t have a million ends to weave in)!
  2. This pattern is made using the C2C entrelac technique. Start at the bottom left corner and work your way up in diagonals (making squares of 9 rows of 12 Simple Stitches) until you reach the top right corner. See the Resources section for a detailed video to follow along.
  3. The types of squares are mentioned as T1, T2, T3 and T4. The instructions for each square type are mentioned in the C2C Entrelac tutorial.
  4. The blue lines indicate the edges of the poncho. The blue line in the front section divides the front panel into two.
  5. Because the blue line divides one column of front squares into two halves, the number of stitches are different in the halved squares from the rest.
    • All squares divided by the blue line in the front panel are split into two rectangles made up of 9 rows of 6 Tunisian Simple Stitches. 
    • All other squares are made up of 9 rows of 12 Tunisian Simple Stitches.
  6. After you have made the poncho, attach the faux fur yarn at any corner of the poncho. Sew the faux fur yarn along the entire edge of the poncho for a luxurious feel! 
    • If you would rather crochet than sew the faux fur yarn, you could make a row of (sc, ch1)* across the border in black color and then crochet the faux fur yarn with a larger hook by inserting your hook into the chain spaces.
