The Paisley Poncho Sweater crochet pattern looks like a poncho but functions like a sweater!
It is over sized and has a lovely drape to it, so you can continue to do all the things you need to do throughout the day, without a big poncho getting in your way.
The buttons keep it secure and give it the sleeve like function!
The Paisley Poncho Sweater uses #6 Bulky Weight Yarn.
The pattern comes in girls sizes small through large and women’s sizes small through large.
The pattern is rated Easy in difficulty. You will need to know how to do the Herringbone Half Double crochet stitch.
The Paisley Poncho Sweater crochet pattern was published back in March 2015. I recently re-made it and made a few changes to give it more of a poncho look, rather than a sweater.
So it is not quite as over sized, and I left the buttons off.
I used Lion Brand Color Made Easy bulky #5 weight yarn for my new poncho. I absolutely love this yarn. It has amazing stitch definition and is really soft and easy to work with.
I also stayed with the smaller hook throughout the poncho, instead of going up to a larger hook like the pattern calls for.
This kept my stitches tighter and made the poncho more fitted.
I kept the pattern as originally written, but did add how to create this more fitted look in the pattern notes. This way you can make it either way that you prefer!
