Summer poncho crochet pattern

One rectangle measures 40 by 80 cm. Begin with a chain that’s about 40 cm long. Make sure your number of stitches can be divided by 8. Add another 4 chains.
I used 88 + 4 = 92 chains for my rectangle.

Row 1 sc in 2nd ch from the hook; sc in the other chains. Turn.
Row 2 Ch 3 (= 1st dc); dc in next 2 st ; skip next 2 st; (dc – ch 2 – dc) in next st;
skip next 2 st; *dc in next 3 st; skip next 2 st; (dc – ch 2 – dc) in next st;
skip next 2 st. Repeat from * and end with 3 dc. Turn.
Row 3 Ch 3 (= 1st dc); dc in next 2 st; *shell in chain space; dc in next 3 st.
Repeat from *. Turn.
Row 4 Ch 3 (=1st dc); 2 dc; * (dc – ch 2 – dc) in chain space of the shell
you made in round 3; ch 1; dc in next 3 st. Repeat from *. Turn.
Row 5 Like round 3.

Repeat row 4 and 5 until your rectangle is 80 cm long.
End with a row 5 . Then crochet a row like described:
Ch 3(=1st dc); dc in next 2 st; *Ch 2- sc in middle of the shell; ch 2; dc in next 3 dc.
Repeat from * until the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.

Crochet an edge around the rectangle like this:
Top: sc in next 3 dc; *2 sc in chain space; sc in sc; 2 sc in chain space; sc in next 3 dc. Repeat from * until the end of the row.
Your number of stitches should be one less than the chain you made in the beginning.
For instance: I chained 92 and have 91 st left.
Continue on the long side of the rectangle and crochet a sc in each dc.
Continue on the bottom and crochet a sc in each st.
Continue on the other long side and crochet a sc in each dc. Close the round and fasten off.

Crochet another rectangle in the same way.

  1. Are we allowed to make and sell the Dutch Messy bun beanie if we use our own pictures and link back to your website? No patterns would be distributed in anyway….just finished product. I have made them as gifts so far and everyone loves them!
    Thank you.
