Cross Country Poncho

Collaborations, Free PatternsAlexandra Tavel8 Comments

The most well-loved items in my wardrobe are those that have come with me on some sort of journey. They hold a nostalgic quality to them and can almost tell a story themselves. They can instantly transport you back to that time, whether it was a vacation, a single outing, a weekend trip, or just a certain period of your life. I love it when clothing (and also scents) hold memories, and it was with this concept in mind that I designed the Cross Country Poncho.

I set out to design something that could be worn every day but still make a statement, because it's pieces like this that I always find myself taking on trips. And something like doubles as a blanket, like a poncho, is so perfect for road trips and long flights. I pictured a neutral-toned poncho that could pretty much be worn with anything and could go from east coast to west coast and everywhere in between and not look out of place. 

I worked it up in Lion Brand LB Collection Superwash Merino knowing that it would get a lot of use and would need to be able to be washed with ease. Merino, while known for it's warmth, also has sweat-wicking properties and can actually help keep you cool as well, so it's great for a variety of temperatures. It's the first time I've worked with this yarn and it was so lovely it will definitely not be my last!

This is one of those I'm-never-taking-it-off pieces, trust me. I already know I'm gonna live in this thing for the next month. It's so comfortable and also has this funny way of making you look really put together even though it's such an effortless thing to throw on. Now I just need to plan a trip so I can really take it for a spin!

Cross Country Poncho Pattern by Two of Wands

Not only is the Cross Country Poncho so fun to wear, it is also a joy to make because of the simple stitch pattern that's kept interesting with the eyelets. I've included both charted and full line-by-line (!!!) instructions for the whole garment for those unfamiliar with reading charts. Actually, this is the perfect pattern to get comfortable with reading a chart, because you can compare the written instructions to them. In my opinion something like this is much easier to work on from a chart, but I always get requests for written instructions when I've used charts in the past, and I really want this pattern to be accessible to all levels since it's such a staple piece so I just went for it. 

I labeled this pattern as intermediate because of the chart reading, but I think an ambitious beginner who's worked on easy level patterns may be able to tackle this one. The techniques involved are double crochet, single crochet, sc3tog, chaining and skipping stitches, working into chain spaces, and crocheting evenly down the side of the work. I hope you will all enjoy the free pattern below, and as always I have an ad-free printable PDF for purchase here. You can also purchase the yarn kit from Lion Brand here.

NECKBAND:

Join yarn at back right neckline and place marker for beginning of round. Sc evenly across back neck and down left front neckline, sc3tog at the center front V and place marker to mark center front st, sc evenly up right neckline. Work 6 more unjoined, spiral rounds of sc, with a sc3tog at the center front V (center stitch should be middle st in sc3tog) each round.

Secure and weave in all ends.


TASSELS:

Cut six 18”/46cm lengths of yarn and set aside. Cut two hundred 14”/36cm lengths and divide into 4 groups of 50. Tie each bundle at the middle point with one of the 18”/46cm lengths. Fold each bundle in half so that the tie is at the tip of the loop created with the fold. Tie crosswise around each folded bundle about 1”/2.5cm below top of fold with remaining 18”/ 46cm lengths. Wrap the tails of the ties around and around the bundles and then thread them inside and down the middle of the bundles with a tapestry needle. Tie the tops of the tassels onto the 4 corners of the poncho and knot to secure. Thread the tails inside and down the middle of the tassels using a tapestry needle. Trim tassels to desired length.
