Beach Comber Poncho Crochet Pattern

Introduction To Beach Comber Poncho Crochet Pattern

Pin for later…

In my minds eye I can totally see wearing this “Beach Comber Poncho at the beach or at pool side. In addition it even looks super sweet with a pair of jeans.  So you can create one with multiple bright colors like the images or you can create a solid color poncho. Hence the choice is up to you! In addition the pattern does not designate a color layout for specific rows. As long as you follow the 3 row repeat pattern instructions you have the ability to create the look you want.  Next time I think I’ll do color blocked poncho next!  There are so many possibilities to create the look you want!

Which design will you create???

Heck you can even make the poncho a bit longer by adding one 3 row repeat to both the front and the back. This off the shoulder design is so cute with just a bit of fringe along the bottom edge. Therefore, it will be your go to poncho for the beach, poolside or a night out on the town. Another great aspect it is created using 100% cotton yarn in an airy stitch design to ensure cooling feature in the summer heat.
