Crochet poncho pattern for children
The Lindsay Poncho is a colorful, but simple crochet poncho pattern for children! Choose 4 colors that you like together for this project. It begins with a ribbed collar, and then the body is worked in half double crochet stitch. Finish with a decorative button band and button.
If you are not familiar with the half double crochet stitch, I have a photo tutorial for that stitch and its decrease that will be very helpful for this project. You can see that here.

I used Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran for this children’s poncho, in colors #10 Lemon, #01 White, #70 Dream Blue, and #33 Peacock. Most sizes need just one skein of each color. The crochet pattern is written in sizes 2-10. Size 8 and 10 need two skeins of the light blue, and size 10 also needs two skeins of the yellow.
The pattern calls for a size H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook or whichever size you need in order to match my gauge.
On the subject of gauge, my swatch changed quite a bit in size when I washed and dried it according to the directions on the label, so I recommend that you definitely wash and dry your swatch before measuring gauge. Use either the White or Peacock to make your gauge swatch, or one of the colors you choose to use in their place, since you will need less of these colors to complete the poncho.
