Are you starting out in crochet poncho? Then look no further. This poncho is made up with two large rectangles while used only the double crochet stitch and the bobble stitch. Therefore, it is easy enough for beginners. Basically, this is a two row and repeat.
Tell you what, this is my first poncho. But I am excited to share with you of my creation. The colours remind me of the fall colours in Canada, so I called this the Pretty Fall Bobble Poncho. It is prefect to wear a one-layer and have it over it in the fall season.
Since it is made up of two large rectangles so it’ll be a great weekend project. And you can easily to adjust it into any size by increase or decrease the number of the foundation chain.
