Well, well, well, it turns out that I think I have found my ultimate warm and plush/cozy poncho to make for my aunt for Christmas. It is suitable for her to wear in the house, as she keeps her place pretty chilly- I don't know why! I cannot stomach having to buy 20-23 skeins of yarn for this, though. They are only 90 yards each! I'd probably buy a different but similar yarn.

This poncho looks warm and comfortable, but I am leery because some of the comments have bad reviews. First, if it is too heavy, why not switch the yarn you are using? Second, if it is not working up to size, I guess you can measure and adjust where necessary.

This is just right for me to make right now. I am heading North for at least a month during the Winter holidays and since I live in florida i don't have any food weather clothing. This is a very easy project, so it will make up easily and quickly. Thanks!

I've started making this Cozy Tweed Crochet Poncho but stopped because actually I could not find a pattern. Thank goodness the pattern's finally here. I can start making this again in the near future after my current projects. Thanks for the pattern. It's the oversized sleeves and the collar that I like about this poncho.

That crochet poncho looks so warm. I love that yarn used because the coloring gives this such a textured look. I am not sure if I would like the high cowled neckline because I dont like items so tight around that area. Has anyone else made one of these and if so how did you make your neckline?

I have been looking for a poncho pattern to make for my Grandson. Yes my Grandson wants a poncho that doesn't look girlley.. This Cozy Tweed Crochet Poncho looks like something he has been wanting. After reading the written pattern here on this page, it looks easy enough. Then I read the comments and it sounds like this pattern has some problems, or it had some. ? I'm going to give it a try and sure hope it works out. Has anyone made this as written this year (2017) ? How did it turn out? Please let me know.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet poncho pattern.

This poncho looks like it will be a nice warm one for cool autumn days. The pattern calls for bulky yarn and large hooks, so it should be quick to make too. I love it has a variety of sizes. The 52 to 62 inch size is nice to see. My grandmother always had such a hard time finding clothing that was loose enough to not cause her pain, so I take notice when I see people have included the larger sizes in their work.

Ponchos are the perfect all-season accessory item. The bulky yarn by Patons that this poncho is made with makes it a perfect winter accessory. I like that the pattern is available in several different sizes. Patons Colorwul yarn is a higher end yarn and costs quite a bit more than others so it would be wise to shop around for the best bargain.

This Cozy Tweed Crochet Poncho looks like a great mix between a really warm poncho and a wonderful blanket to snuggle under on the sofa, lol! My job means I am outdoors a lot even in winter so this is going to be a wonderful option for those extra chilly days when I am sure the cowl neck is going to come in really handy.

This pattern is described as Easy, but it is much more complicated than anything for a Beginner. There are several challenging stitches, and with the exception of the line drawing illustrating the flat project, there arent any helpful photos or video tutorials. It also looks like a yarn hog, too. Not sure if I want to invest that much yarn or time into this project.

I just finished making this and it turned out great, but I had to make a lot of adjustments along the way. First of all, I did a swatch and my gauge was right. Then when I had finished the first few rows, the measurement ended up being 56" instead of 43". This was so frustrating because I recounted my stitches and remeasured 11 of them to check the gauge and everything checked out. I ended up unraveling the whole thing and chaining to 43" which ended up being 79 chain stitches. I went with that and ended up having to alter everything else about the pattern to fit a total of 79 stitches instead of 103. So for the middle section, it was 57 stitches, and then each of the shoulders were 19 stitches with 19 stitches in the middle for the neck. One other thing I did differently is I joined the side ribbed sections as I went instead of waiting until the end and sewing them on. I think that worked out a lot better. Anyway, I am very pleased with my finished product but it was a nightmare to figure it out and also to try to interpret some of the wording in the pattern. Also I used Yarn Bee Fireside yarn and it took me 7 1/2 skeins. The texture of the yarn made it really hard to see my stitches while working on it, but it turned out nice looking, soft and not too heavy.

Thanks for the helpful information. Only comments I read are those from people that have actually made the pattern. Thank you for letting us know how it really works.

I started this poncho pattern and quit when I could see how large it was going to be. Still looking for a nice crochet poncho pattern to use all the yarn I bought!

I just finished this and sadly can't say anything good about it--in fact I'm going to rip it out. First, it's huge, second, it's extremely heavy to wear--did I say it's huge? It was easy enough to make, but very disappointed in the result.

I'm currently working this pattern. I'm making it with Lion Brand "Scarfie" and will require two one more ball than suggested. When the author states "work even in pattern" I believe she is referring to the chain 2 and turn to the next row beginning with a HDC on every row. This is what creates the "texture" of the middle panels. The side panels are meant to be "free" until you sew on the button under each arm when finished. This is what creates the arm holes. I recommend studying the diagram first then begin with the pattern. It is like one big square with a neck hole then folded over to create the poncho. It's really big. Take note that the pattern begins with an 8" section then you go on to the textured section which is the "body" of the pattern. The measurement is meant to be 28" all together by the time you get to the neck area.

'Work even in pat'.(in rows 3-6, right side neck) What does that mean?

I'm trying so hard to make this pattern ... It is written in a very Confusing way... I really don't understand what your supposed to do with the ribbing on the sides... Sew it to the body of the poncho instead of tacking it down as you go.?

Also, another thing one end is 35" across and the other is 43" across for small/medium? doesn't make sense to me.

not looked real hard at it yet but if you add the 4" it shows on each side of the front measurement then the 8" will make it equal the bottom measurement

I haven't made this yet, it looks cute.But a lot of yardage for a small/medium,1800 yds? Is something wrong with the pattern? Would like to know as this would cost a bundle to make. Thanks
