The perfect simple poncho pattern for the fall season.
I have hand-picked each color for this cozy fall poncho; the first color is a sandy fawn beige, which is a cozy color combined with the light brown woody vanilla shade.
And the last one is a dark chocolate testy color…..omg makes me hungry, lol.

Cookie & cream color-block poncho free crochet pattern instruction.
Pick up a crochet hook size 5. oo mm and Start off by making a slip knot.
Then make 170 chains plus 3 chains =173 chains (foundation chain multiple of 2 + 3 ).
You will crochet it loosely, not too tight, to create a soft and squishy.
Row 1: Skip the first 3rd chain from hook (counts as 1 dc), 1 hbdc in next ch, and every ch until the end of the row ( ch3 turn counts as 1 dc)
Row 2: skip the first st, 1 hbdc in the next st, and every st of hbdc until the end of the row; in the last st, make hbdc in the ch3 of the previous row. ( ch3 turn counts as 1 dc)
Row 3 and beyond. Repeat row 2 until we get 18 inches deep and fasten off. Leave long tail for sewing.
Assemble the poncho.
After we all finished with the long rectangle piece, now time for assembly.
Lay a piece of a big rectangle in flatted and then fold them in half and sew along the edge to create the shoulder by using a yarn needle. See pic below.
Then place the stitch marker to fix where the open neck is. then use a yarn needle to sew along to create the shoulder.
After we sew the shoulder, the piece will look like this.
