Free Crochet Poncho - Frosted Petals

Posted on November 05, 2019 by Lorene Eppolite | 0 Comments

 

The Frosted Petals Poncho is a gorgeously textured design that uses the linen stitch in the main body. It's bordered by a lace flower stitch that creates a soft hue and elegant finish. This poncho would be a great addition to any wardrobe fitting sizes small through 5x.

Additional Notes

*Written in US terms

*The poncho is made in two rectangular panels which are about half linen stitch and half flower 
lace. Panels are seamed at the top of the linen section to create the neck opening.

*This pattern is meant to be as adjustable as you need it. It is written with extended widths by adding enough stitches for one more flower in the lace for each size. 

*It is intended to have the linen stitch section cover the depth of your bust, followed by the flower lace stopping at your hips. You are free to add or remove rows of either section if you prefer more or less coverage for that area. For example, women with larger busts might need more rows of linen stitch. Women with longer waists might need more flower lace, versus short-waisted women not needed as much lace length. I want you to feel like this is your poncho, so have fun with it! 

*Ch-1 at beginning of row does count as a stitch when working linen stitch section.

*Ch-1 at beginning of row does not count as a stitch when working lace section.

*Other turning chains are described in lace section.

 

PART ONE

Welcome to part 1 of the Frosted Petals CAL! This first section is super easy, but slightly time-consuming because each row only adds a tiny bit of length to the poncho. If you can chain and single crochet though you'll be set! The linen stitch is worked by alternating single crochet and chain-1 stitches across the top of the poncho. Taking time to count your stitches will help you stay on track and prevent frogging later on. The biggest thing to remember is that after the first row, you will always place a single crochet into a chain-1 space, and chain 1 over the top of each single crochet. I'll be answering questions about this section of the poncho over in the Fun With Furls Facebook group this week, so if you get stuck, or want to show off your progress (which I'd love to see) please come join me! Make two panels following these instructions.
