Nina crochet Fringe Poncho is a great way to add some fun to your fall/winter wardrobe and keep you cozy for this fall.
I love how ponchos are versatile outerwear and make you look chic at the same time.
They are the perfect pieces when you don’t feel like dressing up and want to find something easy to put on and still make you look flawless!
The easiest crochet poncho with fringe pattern.
Ok, girls, let me quickly tell y’all how I came up with this cute poncho name.
Oh well……. the name is inspired by my favorite singer right now, Ed Sheeran and his song are what I like….. if you are a fan, you probably know the song, right? I guess lol.
Anyhow, the Nina fringe poncho is one of the simplest ponchos patterns ever among those easy ones I made.
Nina is a one-rectangle basic crochet poncho with fringe pattern that has a relaxed fit with no shaping involved and little seam on the side to create an open head to pull through.
Crochet Stitch is used for this modern fringe poncho.
The crochet stitch might look crumbled and a little complicated, but they are super easy for beginner crocheters. Just alternate single crochet and double crochet.
Yarn for this chunky feel Nina fringes poncho.
For this fringed poncho crochet pattern, I use 4 medium-weight yarn, or we could use 10-ply yarn to give it a feel chunky but look pretty at the same time.
- Acrylic yarn: In this free pattern, I use 100% polyester fiber content yarn because they are budget friendly and they come out pretty; moreover, they keep me warm, so what more could I ask for this perfect yarn? I absolutely love it.!
- Wool yarn: You girls can go for wool yarn or wool blend if you like. They are probably best to keep toasty warm on a chilly cold day.
- Cotton yarn: if you prefer cotton yarn, just go for it, girls! they are perfect for summer and give a beautiful drape to 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.
After we sew the shoulder, the piece will look like this.
How to add fringe to a crochet poncho.
After we finish sewing the edge to create the shoulder, then we will add fringe at the side of the poncho.
To add fringe, cut the yarn into a long piece and group them into 2 to 3 strands and use your crochet hook to pull up the ground of the yarn strand through the loop on the edge of the poncho.
I made a video tutorial on how to add fringe to the poncho at the end of the video; check it out.
