Whispering Willows Poncho – Crochet Pattern

The Whispering Willows Poncho is a beautiful summer wrap. Made in the right colors this poncho can dress up any evening attire with it’s elegant look. It can be a cute swim top cover, with a cute pair of shorts, because of it’s free flowing design. And, it can add a fun whimsical look to a simple jeans and t-shirt day!

The stitch combination in the Whispering Willows Poncho creates a lovely texture and natural lay of the accessory allowing a slight breeze to go through, but there is still enough close stitches to keep you warm.

About the Whispering Willows Poncho Pattern

The pattern comes in only 2 sizes because ponchos have a forgiving fit and will fit a range of sizes. The pattern has a small/medium size as well as a large/XLarge size. You can easily add additional rows to make the poncho longer to cover more of the arm and/or to add length to the design.

Made in a lighter worsted weight yarn and a crochet hook I (5.5 mm), the Whispering Willows Poncho works up quicker than you might think.

Corner Cable Drape Cowl Crochet Pattern

Introducing a beautiful, lightweight cowl that is perfect for the changing weather, the Corner Cable Drape Cowl.

Not only is this a classic looking piece to add to your wardrobe, your eyes will be drawn to the details in the cables. The beautiful color changes of Lion Brand Mandala yarn perfectly accentuates the cowls design.
Corner Cable Drape CowlThe cowl is made as one flat piece that creates a simple cable design that aligns the top and bottom edge of the cowl. However, If crocheting cables intimidate you, this is a good beginner project so give it a try. After your main cowl is made you will sew the edges partially together to create the “drape” in the cowl.

I loved crocheting the cowl in a light weight (#3) yarn. By using the finer yarn you create a nice, light fabric that keeps the chill off but doesn’t keep you too warm on spring days. Due to the colors naturally changing in the Mandala yarn it results in you getting two completely different colorful looks to your cowl. Just turn and rotate the front and back of the cowl which leaves you with two different colorways.

Corner Cable Drape Cowl

Pattern Details:

The Corner Cable Drape Cowl is made as One Size Fits Most and is a loose fitting garment that really does fit most. I recommend using Lion Brand Mandala yarn, it only takes 1 ball; however, the cowl can be made in any light weight (#3) yarn. Use a crochet H (5 mm) hook, or whatever size meets gauge, this will ensure a proper final size. Some other helpful notions are (1) yarn needle, (2) scissors and (3) a measuring tape.
