Granny squares are such a versatile crochet piece - they're instrumental in granny square afghans, of course, but they can also be pieced together for clothing items, like this Beginner's Favorite Poncho. Work this beginner-friendly poncho pattern by joining several granny squares together. Instructions on making the neckline and the trim are also included. This poncho is a one-size-fits-most design, and will look striking in any color combination you can think of! Try mix and matching solids and variegated hues for a fun multi-colored look.

This is a pattern for a very basic poncho that is made up of granny squares. It can be made with almost any type of yarn that you want, but the one pictures is made up of worsted weight for the trim and bulky yarn for the squares. The stitches for the granny square are standard stitches, the trim is made with half double crochet.

Is this for an adult?

Hi drycreek, According to the blogger on her site, this poncho is intended to be larger than for a child. If you have any additional specific pattern questions, I would suggest you contact the blogger. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

This poncho is another great stash buster. I love making granny squares so this is perfect. Just think of all the variations! The tutorial is excellent as well. Beginner in the title is a good description.

This looks so cozy! I would trade out the blue color with a brighter one for more contrast.
