Lay 2 pieces in flatted then use one end of back panel attach to front end of front panel by sewing with your favorite method. pic below.

After attached front of the poncho already, now we are going to fold each end to creat the back of poncho and attach them by sewing. see pic below.

Now  when you try it on and it slip off your shoulder if the open neck is too wide for you this problem had happen to me. if the poncho does not slip off your shoulder when you guy try it on then you did not need to do it.

we will  sew a bit further up about 3-4 inch up from the back panel. see pic below.

Now enjoy your new poncho.

  2. That so sweet Judy, thanks you.

  3. June Heil says

    Thank you for such a well written pattern that I know a beginner can understand. I’ve made several ponchos using 2 rectangles but their directions for assembly where so confusing. Your directknow are so easy to understand. I really like the front being different different than the back. Keep up the good work.

  4. thanks u so much June.

  5. Tracey M Ovsey says

    I shortened the pattern to 27 inches and unable to do the second part of the pattern. Can you explain what I should do to attach the back. thanks

  6. I made this pattern with some changes. I used a large granny square for the front section and added some continuous single crotchet rounds around the neck instead of sewing up the back. It’s adorable. Thanks!

  7. Hello, Kristy
    awww that’s so sweet of you to let me know, and I am happy that they are turn out so cute for you. I would love to see your creation ,tag me in instragram if u have ig account if you donot that’s ok.

  8. Hi Tracey, you mean the second part of the front panel ?

  9. Cherie Torrey says

    I made this pattern and it came out great. The V-neck was too big, so I crocheted a collar around it to better fit my shoulders. My sister- in -law loved it so much I gave it to her. She is taller and it looked better on her. I am making another, but will shorten it a bit per your suggestion of shortening the foundation. Thanks for this simple, but lovely pattern. P.S. also added a button at the v-neck for a decorative touch.

  10. Hi Cherie, thanks you so much for such a lovely comment, just made my day, would love to see your beautiful project , if you have Instagram please tag me.

  11. These are beautiful patterns…
    and beautifully written…
    Thank you so very much…j

  12. Janet Garcia says

    Hi – how many stitches should I start off with in the foundation chain for a Large size? If I do a large size what are the measurements approximately for the panels? Thanks so much – I am looking forward to making this!
    Janet

  13. HI Janet, This pattern it’s can fit up to size Large because I have my friend who is size large try it on and it is good fit , so For the large size is chain 70, and the measurement for this is the same as the pattern.

  14. Melody Sanchez says

    Is there a pdf on the pattern where I can print?

  15. Hello Lilly,

    I love your poncho but I have a question please.

    In the front panel after you do 18 inches of mini mesh stitch do you change from crochet 3mm to crochet 5mm because I see that for the back panel you use crochet 5mm?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Regards
    Marif

  16. of course I mean “hello Jane” … not hello Lilly 🙂 🙂

  17. Hello Marif, Sorry it was typing mistake I still use 3 mmm crochet hook the way for this lilly poncho.
    Thanks u so much for spot on.

  18. Hi Melody, the pdf print version is on my etsy shop.

  19. Thank you very much Jane…

  20. Hello

    Do you see these pieces together with a darning needle and same yarn? Do you use whip stitch technique?

    Thank You

  21. yes I use whip stitch for sewing the piece togather.

  22. I have the right yarn, but only have a D hook right now. I have enough yarn to make two ponchos, so let’s see how the D hook will effect the sizing, lol. I already wanted to make it sized for XL anyways. Thank you for sharing your pattern!

  23. HI Andrea, I cannot wait to see when u finished.

  24. Hello! I’m a beginner at crocheting. Usually for a 4 weight yarn I use a 5 or 6 mm hook. You used a 3mm hook for the medium weight 4?

  25. Yes Ann, because I used to small hook but you could use 5 mm hook it will be fine but the poncho will come out bigger like 1-2 inch.

  26. What color is that beautiful blue?

  27. Renee, light blue.

  28. Julie Lefebre says

    Hi Jane,
    I am having a hard time with gauge. When I use a 3mm hook I get way more than 3 dc’s within an inch. I can use a larger hook size but I am afraid it won’t fit me after. I am only 5 ft tall and size small normally on tops.

  29. Hi julie , your guange will be fine with 3dc if it more than inch , it can be up to 1.2- 1.3 inch depend on your stitch tention and the result will be not much diffence about 1 or 2 inch bigger it fine i am same size as u.

  30. I love this poncho. Actually I love all your patterns. I’ve made several of them. They are very easy but super cute. Thank you for sharing your beautiful patterns and keep them coming 😀

  31. Aww Colleen, thanks you so much you just made my day , now I have start to make a video tutorial on all my cardigan and poncho and also top patterns and try my best to explain the pattern with video and photo tutorial because my english is not so great..

    Please check it out on my blog for update for video tutorial or go to my youtube channel. And let me know if you like it.

  32. Hi, love the poncho. You mention 1,200 yds of yarn. Is this correct? Pricing out cotton yarn for this amount is sooo expensive. Is there a brand you use and how many skeins?

  33. Hi sandy it approcimately 1200 yard or less , I use about 3 skien of yarn cake.
