The Bijou Asymmetrical Poncho is a beginner friendly poncho – repetitive stitch pattern combines with simple stitches and easy construction for a fun and easy beginner friendly crochet poncho pattern!

I especially love the beautiful drape on this poncho. So figure flattering – no matter your shape this poncho will fit beautifully and make you feel amazing!

For this poncho, I used a variation of the V-stitch – the Offset V-stitch for a lacy look which combines beautifully with Lion Brand’s Shawl in a Cake* for beautiful drape and self-striping ease.

This poncho is so flattering, too! Using self-striping yarn with this asymmetrical style allows the stripes to flatter your shape.

Bijou Asymmetrical Crochet Poncho details

This asymmetrical poncho has minimal seaming. A simple, basic long rectangle is folded together and then seamed along the shoulder seam. So easy!

This pattern is written in three sizes – S/M, L/1X, 2X/3X but instructions are provided to easily resize.

Yarn used in design is the gorgeous Lion Brand Shawl in a Cake which is a medium #4 weight cotton/acrylic blend that is light and easy to wear – perfect for layering. With a lot of drape and beautiful texture!

One of my amazing testers, Julianna R. substituted Lion Brand Mandala yarn and it worked up beautifully! If you are subbing out another yarn – just make sure you can meet gauge as specified in the pattern. Her notes:

For the size L/1X she used 2 cakes, approximately 1180 yards, 300 grams, of Lion Brand Mandala (Light #3) in color “Centaur”. And although she was happy with the length she achieved she could have used a third cake – ending up with a few rows less than the pattern. She looks lovely!

If you enjoy working with Lion Brand Shawl in a Cake you may also like the Midnight Madness Poncho free crochet pattern and the Curvy Girl Cape free crochet pattern which were both designed using this yarn. The Candy Kisses Scarf free crochet pattern and the Desert Sands Scarf free crochet pattern were designed with different yarn but they would look lovely in Shawl in a Cake as well!
