We made this Poncho with and without a collar. It was so easy to crochet as it’s basically four granny squares. I would recommend to be careful with the size of granny squares you make as it will get much bigger once you up it together.  For a size large/X-Large approximately 10-12 rows of granny’s will be fine. Ensure to join it with holders to test it out before going larger. Jayda in Stitches is the instructor of this video and she is so full of energy and laughter, she’ll surely put a smile on your face.

Just in time for the holiday season this cute little basket–bag can be used for many purposes. One trick we discovered was to ensure not to “increase” stitches in the corners or the basket will turn into a sort of purse as you see in this picture. Regardless, it’s still a wonderful project to make and looks fabulous in variegated yarn as well. Click here for the video tutorial

In this case, we also changed the pattern slightly to provide full length arms to the sweater. Though the instructor considers it a modified poncho or a Ruana as it’s known in Peru, this sweater looked more like a “varsity jacket” by the time it was done. We also added toggle buttons to the neck to hold it closed. Note that the sweater will also be bluckier and look more like a jacket if you use chucky yarn #6. If you want it to be more like a blouse, use thinner yarn like a #3. Note: this video is in Spanish. Click here for the tutorial.
