I have always loved ponchos — growing up in the 70s gave me an appreciation for crocheted ponchos and I have never looked back! These designs are trendy, modern and perfect for spring and summer!
This list of free crochet patterns feature ponchos you can wear on a cooler summer evening. Throw one on over your sundress for an evening outdoor concert or sitting out on the deck under the stars. So many variations to choose from but you can make them all!
This Light and Lacy Summer Poncho by Helen of Crystals and Crochet is a perfect summer poncho! Make this with a light weight cotton — so bright and cheerful!
The Gemstone Lacy Poncho by Dorianna at The Lavender Chair is so pretty and has a real retro vibe! Designed with Caron Cakes could be made with the self-striping Caron Cotton Cakes for summer wear for a similar look. However, this would also look so classy in a solid color cotton!
The Kanata Kerchief Tank Pattern by Jennifer Ozses isn’t really classified as a poncho but is a fun and flirty tank made with cotton yarn. Would look great in Lion Brand 24/7 or Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton! Using basic beginner crochet stitches and a video tutorial to begin your project this free Ravelry download would make a perfect summer project!
The Pointed Hem Topper by Maz Kwok of Be a Crafter is so flattering with the asymmetrical hem. Made with two rectangles that are sewn together makes this poncho an easy make!
The Southern Diamonds Poncho by Kathy of Elk Studio is so light and airy using the v-stitch and the double crochet shells edging is just so pretty!
The Sand and Sea Poncho by Sara of Posh Pooch Designs is made as just one large rectangle so is a one-size fits most and would make a great swimsuit cover!
The Ocean Waves Swim Suit Cover by Sara of Posh Pooch Designs is a super simple cover up that is made with Red Heart It’s a Wrap — so thready, lacy and light!
The Spring Leaves Poncho by Maz Kwok of Be A Crafter is so sophisticated and classy and it has such a lovely and interesting leaf design. Made in two pieces and then seamed together can be worn multiple ways!
Designed with one of my favorite yarns — Lion Brand Mandala — the Bohemian Kimono Poncho by Acquanetta of Olive + Brook is light, easy and breezy! Made with just three stitches!
The Whimsical Waves Poncho by yours truly is made with Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta yarn and a unique stitch combination that merges mesh triangles with lacy wavy sides. Made in just two pieces this is a gorgeous piece!
Have fun with this list of free ponchos!
