Inspiration for the Portobello Crochet Poncho Pattern
Crocheting oversized garments can be fun and easy at the same time. I wanted a poncho that is lightweight and flowy at the same time.
This design is perfect for all season as you can either style it up or down, pairing with other garments.
You can go to any length either the customization of your poncho. These includes using color blocking or even coordinating colors! Oh, the portobello crochet poncho is also beautiful in just one color!
