Forest Ripple Poncho
"Layering is essential when it comes to seasonal wardrobes, and this crochet poncho is the ultimate layering piece. Worked from the bottom up and seamed at the shoulders, the two identical panels are worked in a 2-row pattern repeat crochet ripple stitch. One row is worked in front loops and one row in back loops, giving a lovely ridged effect. The optional hood is one size. It is crocheted directly onto the poncho after seaming the shoulder seams. The hood is worked in treble (UK) / double (US) stitches in alternating front loop and back loop rows to a specific measurement before shaping. The sides of the hood are shaped in four rows and seamed together. This pattern is written in UK and US crochet terms for sizes S to 5X. Wear it over a long-sleeved shirt for those brisk autumn mornings, or layer it with your favorite chunky sweater or scarf underneath. "
