May are approaching, this month is the beginning of the rainy season in Thailand. So I was thinking about something Boho style and they should be great to wear for some chilling day when it rain. The bohemian style right now is so into me. I also want to add some color to the piece.
So I start to looking for the easy basic crochet stitch and great for beginner as well and the hundstooth crochet stitch is caught my eyes, at first sight I thought they look hard but infact, they are really really easy , actually super easy !!! than you guys think.
It’s basically a single and double crochet repeat all the way thought each row and switch up the color. then yeah!! you got a houndstooth crochet stich with pretty color! This stitch is similar to lemon peel stitch.
Talking about poncho is one of my favorite item to wear for this season was inspired from de love of bohemian style. This poncho is made from soft and breathable cotton yarn with light weight that will make you feel oh so soft and comfy.
Have you seen my sugar drop summer top yet? they are nice and breezy for summer.

Each rectangular I measures around 16 inch wide x 56 inch long.
For the width: If you need to make it wider simply add more chain in even number +1 to foundation chain..like 60+1, 70+1 , 80+1 etc. I start this poncho with foundation chains of 60+1.
For the length: add more row.

Boho chic houndstooth poncho instruction.
Start of by making a slip knot Then make 60+1 chains (foundation chain) blue
Row1. blue, sc in the next chain from hook, then dc in next chain * sc in next, then dc in next* repeat from * to * across until the end of the row and in the last chain make dc, ch1 turn. Leave the yarn tail about 3 inches cut it off, this will make the fringe.
Row2. white, *sc on top of the dc from the previous row , then dc on top of sc of the previous row * repeat from * to * across until the end of the row and in the last st make dc, ch1 turn. Leave the yarn tail about 3 inches cut it off, this will make the fringe.
Row3. blue, *sc on top of the dc from the previous row , then dc on top of sc of the previous row * repeat from * to * across until the end of the row and in the last st make dc, ch1 turn. Leave the yarn tail about 3 inches cut it off, this will make the fringe.
Repeat row 2 and 3 until your piece measures approximately 56 inches long and Fasten off.
Repeat the same process to make second piece of rectangle
After you got 2 pieces of rectangle , then time to tidy up the yarn tail in the center part by weave in all end so it is easy to seam up.
Time to assembly.
Lay 2 pieces of rectangles side by side. Now, using a yarn needle and whip stitch to seam up the middle part together to create the front panels, from the top up around 15 inches. Tie off and weave in ends.
Leaving space for the open neck 10 inches.
Then seam up the from the neck down to the end to create the back part of the poncho see pic below.
After you finished seam up the center part of the poncho.
Now we are going to fold up the front part and seam up the side of the poncho to create the arm hole ( I am leaving space for the arm hole 8 inches ) see pic below.
All done! hope you guy enjoy to make this Boho chic poncho.
