My name is Susan Lowman. I've been crocheting for over 40 years and designing for over 15 years. I have over 200 published crochet designs in various crochet books and magazines. In addition, I blog about crochet and self-publish crochet patterns on my website, TheCrochetArchitect.com. I am also a technical crochet editor and teacher, as well as an active professional member of CGOA.
I learned to knit in the summer of 2013 and I couldn't be more thrilled! I'm having a blast learning more knitting techniques. You'll see some of my knitting designs here on Craftsy, too.
I thank God for the gift of creativity He has given me and I thoroughly enjoy sharing it with others.
Made from just one ball of yarn, including the little flower at the neckline, you'll love crocheting this "show-stopping" poncho! We've used 140 grams of Kauni Effektgarn, a variegated 100% wool fingering weight yarn, to create our Kauni Poncho. This yarn is a dream to work with and the color changes give it that "wow factor"!
The poncho is made with 2 crocheted rectangles, which are seamed together to form the poncho: no shaping is required. A simple neckline edging is added, along with the little flower for that finishing touch.
The pattern includes many close-up photos, along with an assembly chart and a symbol crochet chart.
1 pattern repeat (on Rows 2-5) = 2 1/2" wide; 4 rows in pattern = 1 3/8" high (before blocking)
