I'm stuck! I have tried to sew together but the v line doesn't line up, it's much longer on one side...please help!

Hi Precious, I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble finishing this pattern. It seems like you may have accidentally increased the number of stitches per row while making this pattern. I would recommend counting the number of stitches in your last row and see if it is the same as the first row. If the number of stitches is different, you may need to go back and redo the second part of the poncho. If the number of stitches matches up, it could be that your tension varied throughout the pattern, which could have impacted the gauge of the pattern. Here is a helpful article all about gauge in crochet, if you are not already familiar: https://www.allfreecrochet.com/Basics/What-is-Gauge-in-Crochet. I hope this helps! - Laura, editor of AllFreeCrochet

This is the kind of poncho that is very appropriate for fall. The colors resemble the colors of the leaves on the trees, and on the ground when those leaves start to fall. Oh I just love autumn. The kaleidoscope of colors is overwhelming. I want to make this larger and longer if I were to start this project.

I love this poncho. Thanks so much for the free pattern. If I wanted to make this poncho for a younger girl would I just use a smaller hook or would it be better to adjust the stitching? Any help from anyone that reads this would be appreciated. I love the colors of that yarn. They are perfect.

This Effortless Chic Poncho is shown in two separate ways to wear. I like the versatility of this pattern and am considering making varied colors and sizes for sale and gifting. Ill keep the child size (boy girl) in juvenile colors like bright yellow, pink, and green, however for adults its more blues, reds, browns and blacks.

A simple, yet classy poncho that I would like to have added to my wardrobe for this fall. I love the color choices the designer picked. They match so perfectly with her blouse. I will keep that in mind when I buy my yarns to take the shirt I plan on wearing with this with me to match my yarns.

I like that this poncho is made in two different parts. This is one of these projects that I can do while sitting in front of the television. I like that it can be worn in two different ways.

This is a quick pattern to work up and is easy to follow. It is easy to adjust if you need to make it larger or smaller. It can be work with the points in front and back with a v-neck, or with the points on the sides with a boat-neck style.

This pretty poncho uses a special stitch- the "X" stitch. It is done by skipping ahead one stitch and double crocheting, then back-tracking and double crocheting there. It creates a very cool effect! I am not familiar with the yarn she used, but I am willing to bet that you could use the famous Red Heart Boutique self-striping yarn in place of that if you cannot find it. I love this poncho!

Love the diagonal pattern that makes this poncho so distinctive. I am so hoping that the yarn recommended in the pattern, Plymouth Encore Dynamo, is available here in South Africa because the self striping aspect is so visually effective in the photo shown. Otherwise I will have to find a substitute. I would like mine to be longer so am going to have to figure out how to do that while staying in line with the pattern.

Ponchos are back baby! Love this one. Looks just like the classic ones from the 1970s. I have noticed a trend in the fashion styles that is bringing back a lot of the things that we used to wear in the 1960s and 1970s. I dont mind. I love it. The colors on this chic poncho are awesome and very retro.

Who knew crocheting two rectangles and joining them together could get you a product like this. The bold colors selected here shouts "look at me" I love the edging applied and the length is perfect for me. I agree with the designer a poncho is a must-have accessory in any womans wardrobe.
