Cowl neck poncho pattern
Wrap up warm for winter with this super-popular poncho pattern by Simone Francis
Poncho's are a fantastic project if you're looking to start your first crochet garment! You don't have to worry about sleeves or shaping, and the loose flowing nature of poncho's means it's ok if it comes out a bit slouchy! This gorgeous design by Simone Francis was originally published in issue 25 of Simply Crochet magazine, and has gone on to be one of our best-selling designs on Ravelry.
Simply Crochet issue 25 is also still available as a digital edition, for Apple phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and to read through Zinio as PDFs. Click here to find the right version for you.
