Dragonfly Crochet Poncho

Dragonfly Crochet Poncho

"The Dragonfly Poncho is so quick and easy to make and if you use a self striping yarn, such as Caron Cake, the yarn does all the work for you! The dragonflies are charming as they scatter throughout the poncho. A simple design allows both the dragonflies and yarn to show through. I designed the poncho in two sizes, child and adult, but with the stitch multiple identified it is really easy to adjust to almost any size you might desire."

Dragonflies are beautiful and this crochet poncho is just as beautiful. I really love the color of Caron yarn used but when I went to shop for the yarn, I found that there are a lot of shades. I think I will have to go to the store to make a selections as viewing them on line in not sufficient.

This dragonfly crochet poncho is adorable. I love that the designer has elected to use the Caron cakes. Using this type of yarn eliminates the need to change colors and still get a beautiful piece like this. The designer also included the directions to make it for an 18" doll.

I have never seen this Dragon Fly crochet stitch before. It looks so pretty in this Ombre teal color yarn. I would like to try it in solid colors. I think the dragon fly will stand out more. Not only spring colors, but fall colors too. Im thinking of emerald green, plum, deep cherry, burgundy, and many others.

Zeemer, I am curious as to why you wouldn't use a dragonfly stitch on this poncho? Is there a particular reason or just a personal taste type thing? I have a friend who loves dragon flies and I am always looking for unique gifts for her, and this looks like a great one to try. She definitely wont be expecting this at Christmas!

I've seen this dragonfly stitch before being used in afghans and blankets and I was pleasantly surprised to see the same stitch used in a poncho. Yes, why not? Any stitch can be used to make a poncho, right? But personally, I wouldn't make a poncho using the dragonfly stitch. Nevertheless, this Dragonfly Crochet Poncho still stands out because of the color combination used. The monochromatic blue is fantastic' it will enhance the color of the wearer's skin. Although here, if I were to do this, I'd prefer the lighter colors placed on the lower side of the poncho, the darker side nearer the collar. Thanks.

I have a couple of family members that absolutely love everything dragonflies. This would be the best Christmas present, especially with the cold weather and love that the pattern is easy!

Oh-I have been obsessed with dragonfly patterns and this one tops them all. I fell in love this with Dragonfly Crochet Poncho. It is so different then any other poncho I have seen out there that I can't wait to make it. I like the self striping yarns that make the best color patterns. This pattern is very well written and so easy to follow. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This poncho is super cute! The design is so fun and it's something you can wear now and in the spring.
