Ice Crystals Poncho
This Ice Crystals Poncho pattern uses bamboo yarn and looks beautiful when it's put together. A zipper separates one side from the other around the shoulder area. This is a fun crochet pattern to work on. You can't go wrong with wearing a poncho in any season, especially this one because it's a light layer that you can take off or layer under for more warmth. It's stylish, which is what really counts when you're making it for yourself or anyone else.

This ice crystals poncho is really pretty from what can be seen. I can determine there is a little texture to the design and an added bonus of a zipper. With only four lines to master, this should be a cinch to complete. I am concerned with how to sew in the zipper. Sewing is not one of my strong suites.

I am almost sure this is the first poncho pattern that I have come across with a zipper included. At first glance of the design I was interested in knowing about the "gap" on the left arm and soon found out its origins when I read the directions. I think I like it but never in a million years in white.

Ice Cyrstals Poncho - named so probably because of the yarn used that has bits of shimmer in it. For me I would like to make this larger, ovesized if possible to make it more of a fashionista thing. The zipper on one side of the shoulder gives it a different flavor showing a little skin on the arms which makes it look sexy. Why not? This will also look good when done in vibrant and also in earth colors. Cheers!

I love bamboo yarn! This poncho is going to look great. I will pick a yarn that has a little "glow" to it so it adds a nice touch. I never thought of adding a zipper before but it is a great idea. This way you can adjust the way it falls. It will all depend on your mood. Working in an office with the temperature always changing, this poncho will look perfect. Thank you

So pretty and what a clever idea to have a zipper instead of sewing together the 2 edges! I am thinking of adding a small border but have not yet decided exactly what it will be. Both our daughters want one of these ponchos so it will be a little while before I can make my own one but, with cooler fall days now with us here in South Africa, it is going to be really nice to wear as the days lose the summer heat.

Can somebody please help me with this pattern!!? I have completed and unpicked this poncho twice now, it just doesn't make sense (and I am an experienced crocheter!) the first few rows are fine, but then the last 2 sc dont end up above the last dc and 3ch.. should the poncho expand as a 'V'' as you go? or like a '/'? I am about to give up..

Can you draw a diagram to show how to fold the poncho so that I can attach the zipper? My teacher couldn't figure it out by just looking at the photo. Thanks.

Made this in lavender bamboo yarn for my 13 year old granddaughter. She just adores it. Lavender is her favorite color. Had the zipper put in as I don't have a sewing machine. Pattern was simple. I too wondered how it would turn out...it was beautiful.

Is it possible and convenient to use velcro? Just an idea to consider especially if person making it for has a hard time zipping or buttoning. Worth a try?

hook and loop AKA Velcro will snag on the crochet and cause little pulled areas. if washed it will really make a mess.

I am going to try a button, I am half way through, and I hope this thing ends up right, looks like the neck is going to be tight, but a teen might be able to wear it right. good luck,, post how it came out.

I thought I would like to try it with buttons, how did yours turn out. It seems to me three or four large buttons on the shoulder would be nice. Thanks.

I don't see any reason you can't leave the zipper out & just leave the seam open enough to pull it over your head. I'm going to try that myself. I'm not sure if the "rhinestone" zipper is part of what makes it "Ice Crystals" or not but I think it will work better. I'm afraid having the bottom of the zipper near the neck will make it too tight to get over your head. OR, since it's supposed to be a'separating' zipper, won't it be hard to put 2 sides together to get the zipper started??? It just looks a little tight on the neck for me. What do you think??

I don't know why anyone would want a zipper on a crocheted poncho to begin with. You could always leave the opening larger and use a pin, brooch or other to close it up closer if you wanted.

I love the looks of this poncho for my 14 year old granddaughter. I am thinking about making it and sewing the shoulder seam rather then putting in a zipper. Do you think that will work alright? JCG

Might be too tight at the neck, but you leave the neck opening a little more open and add a button
