OMG I just found this today and this is so perfect!
Even if you can't make a complete tutorial could you justteach us how to start the poncho? I would love to make a project like this, Lucy.


Hi Lucy...
I love the poncho...
But I cannot find the instructions?
Are they available please?
Regards amanda


Hi Lucy, I was looking for the pattern too. Is it somewhere here? Or have you forgotten how you made it? :-) Pat


This is exactly what I want to crochet with my leftovers! Very nice! Did I miss where you posted the instructions? Please let me know where they are... or anyone who knows could answer my question. Thank you very much.

Ooh, I love that feeling! But it can be so dangerous, so glad that your project is working out. :)


thank you for another inspirational year Lucy! Whenever things are getting on top of me, I go to your blog for a little dose of colour and happiness. Wishing you all the best for 2014. My grandmother taught me how to crochet in the 1970s and she made me the most gorgeous poncho- thank you for reminding me...


Poncho pattern? This is just lovely! Had one my Granmommie made for me in the 1970s, but it has been lost... Would love to make for myself & granddaughters... Help, Lucy!!! :)


I saved up many of your posts (starting with the Coat Story) to read as a pre-Christmas treat. I've just finished reading them whilst drinking coffee and looking out onto my slightly battered winter garden.
Thank you for your brill photos and wonderful writings.
Merry, merry Christmas to you all and all the very best for 2014.
PS And I just love that coat. One of my resolutions is to learn how to crochet!


Rebecca, hang in there sweetie, it'll settle down one of these days. Glad to know there are others who come here for the calming and encouraging words and photos. We all need that, at all times of life. Hugs to you!!


how wonderful. Having made and worn many ponchos during the 70's, just a few days a go I was dreaming of making a new one for myself! It's been quite cold here lately, and sweaters just don't have the Snuggle Quality that ponchos do. Will be watching for a pattern! Baby Cashmerino would be quite the splash out, but I'll go by the Nordic Mart store for some Drops tomorrow to see what they might have. (They do a BC also)

Hello, dear Lucy.
I love your work and fun colors as you use in all your projects. I would knit him a poncho for my daughter to crochet like yours and would like you to show me the pattern or scheme you use. I would be very grateful.
What kind of wool do you use? I love how you weave the clothes are. It shows that they are very soft.

A kiss.


I had a poncho many years ago. It wasn't crocheted, but my mum made it out of a multi-coloured fleecy blanket. It was lovely and warm. Good luck with your project!

Oooh, that is lovely! I have lost my will to crochet for MONTHS now and I think this has just inspired me to get moving again. Will you be posting the pattern when you finish?? I researched ponchos on Ravelry a few years ago but could not find anything I liked. I love the way this looks so I would love to make one for myself. Happy Holidays!


Yes, yes, and more yes! Now that's a wearable blanket indeed. I can't wait to see the whole thing in its wonderful, colorful, hooky entirety. You are the bee's knees. :)

Lucy, I have been looking for something like this for ages. I just love it....are you going to make the pattern available because I really am dying to make. Merry Christmas to you and your family.


I love the colors of your poncho and can't wait to see it done :) Thank u so much for visiting :) Have a beautiful day!

Bari Jo

So pretty - I think those flowers/leaves would look wonderful around the neck or the hem of your poncho!


What a great idea, and much better looking than a Snuggie! I can't wait to see it when it is finished. What are you going to call it?

Lyn Zalk

Inspired!!!!!!!!!! On so many levels....

Jane Thompson

It's going to be lovely Lucy, but we've come to expect that from you! In Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino it will certainly give you a snuggly hug. Don't feel naughty about eating carrot cake, busy mums need the fuel!
Best wishes

Love the idea Lucy and the colours! What about using the little flowers in a fringing? I still have the shawl my mum made me dot years ago and it has the most fabulous flower fringe. Tiny little flowers dangling away. :-) I'm sure someone else must have thought of it too! Happy Christmas!
