Crochet Poncho Video Tutorial For Beginners
As I mentioned in the Alpine Poncho pattern, I really wanted this project to be approachable for beginners who are ready to move beyond scarves and blankets. Because this crochet poncho pattern is made from five basic rectangles, it's truly is as simple as making a bunch of scarves and wrapping them around your body in a fashionable way. Ha, sounds easy, right?!
In this video tutorial, I cover each step of how to crochet this poncho sweater, including how to make the main rectangles, how to crochet the sleeves and collar using half double crochet through the back loop only, and lastly, how to easily seam it all together.
This is one of those projects that feels way fancier than the sum of its parts, so I hope you love it as much as my mom and I do. (My mom helped design it and crochet the sample you see here!)

It's always exciting when Lion Brand chooses to offer one of my patterns as a kit on their site so I'm happy to share that you can now order an Alpine Poncho kit, which includes all the yarn you'll need and a black and white printed copy of the pattern (including the stitch charts!)
