Warm Embrace Poncho
"Crochet fitted poncho with cowl neck collar and ribbed texture. This one is a small and chic warm layer for cold days. Just add your favorite brooch or pin. I chose simple stitches and gray worsted weight yarn for this design. So this is a fairly easy crochet poncho pattern for most crocheters. You can increase or decrease the length easily by adding a few more rounds. Steam blocking your finished poncho to flatten the curls out if needed."

When I think of poncho the first thing to pops in my head is the vision of Clint Eastwood in the western movies he was so famous for. This is not that poncho. It is very classy and even though I typically do not lean to making poncho projects this may be the one exception.

Ponchos are not really my thing but I would consider this warm embrace poncho a little different than the ponchos that I have seen before. It is more elegant or substantial in some way. I really like this design from the collar to the scalloped edges. This poncho would be the one to make for me.

This pattern looks simple enough but it does not explain what "fpdc" is. I looked it up and it is front post double crochet and looking at the photo you can see what effect it has on the pattern. An explanation of the stitch is really called for and an explanation on why it is important to the pattern to cause that raised effect . I do like the fact it is more of a capelet and for me it is perfect for the colder months in the office. I will have to look for a video to see how that stitch is done.

Oooh, I really like this one. Simple, yet classy. My mother would love this. She gets chilled, but a sweater is often too much. It would look nice as a capelet over clothing, and as an accessory for extra warmth over a nice coat. This one is going on my to do list asap.

In my opinion, a more fitting name for this would not be a poncho, but rather a capelet! This is a classic wardrobe staple that you do not see much of anymore. It's retro, it's sophisticated, it's ladylike. They gray color choice?- it's right on point! I agree with the intermediate rating. Although, it does not seem all that hard to do as far as pattern directions. Love it!

Embrace poncho is truly to my liking. Even the length is perfect. I need warm items like this for year round comfort.

Im not a fan of crocheted ponchos due to their weight. This poncho is much shorter, and I might try working this pattern up. Its almost more of a capelet than a poncho since there arent any arm holes to deal with. I would also work the first round as a Foundation Double Crochet instead of joining a 75-chain. I find that its much easier to avoid twisting that way.
